Some of these topics we revisit regularly to consolidate the children’s understanding


Over the next few weeks we would be covering the following activities in our Grammar lessons…

  • Using the prefix un- to change the meaning of verbs and adjectives (e.g. kind – unkind) click here and here and here
  • Adding suffixes to verbs without changing the root word (e.g. walk – walked) click here and here and here

By the end of year 1 all of the children should know all of the sounds up to Phase 5.  Phonics play is a fantastic website that we use in school that has lots of fun and interactive games that you can play at home.

Topic     DT- Packaging

Home learning focus

Learn the basics of product packaging design and production.

This lesson includes:

  • two video clips demonstrating designing and producing food packaging and some of the laws around it

  • two activities to try at home

Click here

Activity 1

Get an adult to help you find paper-based food packaging from around your house, eg cereal, eggs and fruit juice.

Outside of the legally required information, what design features are present?

You should consider:

  • Shape - What shape is it? Is it holding lots of things and keeping them apart? Can they easily fall out?
  • Opening - Does it need to open and close again, or not? If so, how does it do this?
  • Colour - Does the colour help you know what the flavour will be?
  • Pictures - How do the pictures or images used make you feel? Do they help you know what the packaging contains?
