Remember to keep checking on Purple Mash to see what activities have been set for your children to do! I will also be updating this page regularly so make sure to keep looking back! Thank you for your support and understanding, if you have any questions, I will be happy to help and you can contact me at atrayte@ashleyhill.org (I would also love to see photos of anything else you are getting up to at home!). Make sure to stay healthy and safe and happy! This is a lovely time for lots of baking, gardening and board games with all the family, it doesn't have to be all work!


It has been so lovely to receive emails from you regarding the work you have been getting up to, I have loved seeing your photographs and activities! Please keep sending them through as they brighten up my day! I am missing you all very much and hope you are all staying safe and healthy! Miss Trayte xx


Below is a social story that may be of benefit for the children in this tricky time.


We have learned all our sounds but it is really important to keep practicing recognising and reading these sounds in a variety of words!


The children love to play this bingo game:



Alphablocks is a children's show that focuses on sound learning and blending which can be interactive and you can find this on YouTube:



Read Write Inc are putting on their own phonics lessons daily on YouTube and will be available for:

Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12.30 pm
Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm
Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm



This website will be helpful for parents to understand how to pronounce each of the sounds and other useful information about phonic skills:



Please ensure that you are reading the Read Write Inc books sent home three times before moving on to the next book.


There are also comprehensions on Purple Mash for children to complete.

There are some writing activities on Purple Mash for the children to get involved with but the children can also go with their own ideas and interests! They could write a prayer in preparation for Easter, write a fact file on an animal they find on a walk, write a story, write instructions on how to bake a cake, etc.


This photograph of a sound map below may help with the children's writing as they regularly use these to help them to spell.

Times Tables Rockstars is live for children to use with their log ins to practice their times tables:



White Rose Maths has some great tutorials on some concepts and some worksheets to go with them:



This week on White Rose is focused on equal groupings, counting in tens and arrays. These are things we have covered in year 1 previously so test your knowledge with these activities!


You can turn lots of things into Maths learning - cooking with ingredients (counting, weight, etc), going shopping (money), learning to tell the time, etc.


There are also activities on Purple Mash and even more links provided below.


Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is streaming daily PE lessons from Monday-Friday at 9am on his YouTube channel for the children to join with:



Here are some more links to keep the children up and moving:
