It’s April! More home learning ideas for Year 1

Wednesday 1st April | 13 comments

Have you had fun with capacity? Are you busy writing a chicken book?

Over the next few days you could do some of these activities…

English – do some of the Chicken Licken ideas from Monday’s blog

Maths – revisit previous learning. Can you count in 10s? Can you make equal groups?

Reading – enjoy reading one of your reading or library books. Can you spot any phonemes in the book?

Phonics – write a silly sentence and add it to the comment section of the blog. Have a go at the phonic detective sheets.

RE – find out about why some families celebrate Easter


This week we would have been learning about Easter. Enjoy these short videos…

Over the next few weeks you could do some Easter activities.

  • Make an Easter card for someone in your family
  • You could boil an egg and then decorate it
  • Have a go at egg rolling!
  • Make an Easter bonnet
  • Make chocolate nests and enjoy eating them!
  • Draw eggs and hide them around your house for your family to find them

There are a few fun Easter activities attached.


Please find attached some more phonic sheets. You could have a go at making your own sheet to test your family.


Can you complete these flashback activities? These are based on maths we have covered throughout the year.

What’s the fastest way to count the eggs?

We can count in 10s. See if you can try this one.

Can you complete the activity sheet?

Lesson 2 – Make equal groups

Can you make equal groups?

There are 2 equal groups of 4.

Can you pick an object and place them on plates to make equal groups? How many groups do you have? How many in each group?

Can you complete the activity sheet?

Remember there are more maths videos and ideas on the White Rose Maths Home Learning pages. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
