09.45 – 10.00

Phonics and spelling

Please practice your phonics sounds and your spellings:

Year 1 children should practice their Phase 3 to Phase 5 sounds and Year One Common Exception Word spellings. Focus on 5 sounds and 5 words a week.

Year 2 children should practice their Year Two Common Exception Words. Focus on 10 words a week. You can also practise putting these in sentences.

(You will find the common exception words and sounds in your pack. To practise your spellings use LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK).

10.00 – 10.15

Grammar session

You should already have some grammar activities that your teacher has given you – you need to be thinking about nouns, verbs, adjectives and conjunctions. If you are in Year Two, then you should also be thinking about adverbs and contractions.

Year 1 daily challenge, write a question (using a question mark) and write an appropriate answer.

Year 2 daily challenge, write 3 sentences about your day. Try and use: contractions (e.g. can’t, I’m), conjunctions (and, but, so, because) and commas in a list.

10.15 – 10.30

Word games

Play a fun word game like a word search, crossword or find someone to play hangman with!

You will find some of these activities on the school website that your teachers have found for you to play.

10.30 – 10.45


Have a drink and a healthy snack – if you can, have some fresh air and try to do some simple exercise like Wake Up, Shake Up!

10.45 – 11.15

Reading time

This is the time to enjoy a story! You should have lots of reading books from your teacher, as well as book you chose from the school library. Try to read your book to a grown up and share the story with them – grown ups like stories too!

If you have already read all of your books then you can find some new books to read on Oxford Owls.

If you would like to listen to stories being read to you, then you can find lots of audiobooks on Audible. You can also listen to David Walliams reading his stories here.

11.15 – 11.30

Mindfulness reflection

This is a calm and peaceful time to focus on being healthy, happy and positive! Think about the IPC goals and the values we hold at Old Oak Primary School.

You can also try Headspace – a free website, providing lots of ideas for mindfulness.

11.35 – 12.35


You should do some maths activities for about one hour – if you try to do more than 1 hour, you’ll struggle to keep all of the information in your brain!

You can watch a maths lesson every day on the White Rose website. Just choose the year group, watch the video and compete the activity. You can then ask a grown up to mark your work as all of the answers are there for the grown ups to use!

You can also find lots of maths challenges on the I See Maths website and on the Oxford Owl website.

12.35 – 13.30


Enjoy a healthy lunch and try to get outside again for some fresh air. Try to help with making your lunch – think about what ingredients and what equipment you need. Making your own lunch makes it taste even better!

13.30 – 14.30

IPC – research and create!

Your IPC topic is Earth Our Home and your teacher has asked you to make a habitat for an animal, so if you haven’t managed to do that yet, spend some time completing that task.

There are lots of videos about habitats, animals and food chains on BBC Bitesize.
