Rainbow Fish – Year 1


Welcome to Rainbow Fish’s Class Page!

Here you will find the work Miss Williams has set for your children! This page will be updated with new work weekly and answers will be provided the following week.

All tasks set are linked to the National Curriculum requirements for Year 1 and will ensure your child’s progression throughout this time and beyond. As well as the work here, children have also been sent home with Home Learning packs to complete. We have also sent children home with paper and other stationary to help with their work.

Week 1


Year 1 Home Tasks

During the period of home learning, work has been provided to continue learning at home. We have provided home learning backs specifically linked to the National Curriculum and the abilities of the children, these can be found at the school office. These packs contain:

  • A library book
  • 2 reading books that match their reading level (some books are paper copies and some are master copies- both need to come back into school)
  • 2 phonics booklets (with alien and real words, start with booklet 1)
  • A maths booklet for additional learning
  • A writing booklet for additional learning
  • A pencil
  • A work book to write your answers in
  • Mathletics logins

While they are off, the children are expected to complete these tasks daily:

  • 1 Maths Task from their packs and go onto Mathletics.
  • 10 minutes of reading
  • 1 English task from the link -> Year 1 English week beginning 23rd March
  • A speed sound lesson online with sounds from their packs (ask the children what sounds they already know)

Free youtube speed sound lesson- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFClg9GdxtQ also on the Ruth Miskin Training Facebook or Youtube page

In addition to English and Maths, Topic work will be provided on a weekly basis on the website, with tasks for the children to complete. For additional learning, links have been provided below. We are aware this is a difficult time but we hope children can complete these tasks to make the necessary progression.

We encourage some independent learning too. Our home learning topic is Manchester, get creative with this topic.
