Good morning Year 1.

Phonics -This week we are practising the different code for /igh/. We have learnt /igh/ as in knight, /ie/ as in pie/y/ as in cry and /i/ as in find. Today’s code is a split digraph /i_e/ as in bike. Make a word list with the split digraph in, for example ice, nice, price.
Don’t forget you can practise these using book 26 on

English – I would like you to think of another thing that dogs like to do. What other problems could George face? I know my dog struggles to bark at the door, eat my slippers and sleep on my bed. I would like you to draw a picture of George having to make decision about what to do for a situation like this.

Maths – Building on our learning from yesterday we are looking at how to compare time. Try the problems below:

PSHE – In the book George does lots of things that get him in to trouble. Talk to an adult about the following questions:


  • What does it mean to be good?
  • How does George try to apologise?
  • Have you ever done something that you shouldn’t of?
  • How can we apologise when we have done something that might upset someone else?


Have a wonderful day.
