Welcome back to Victoria Park Infant School

Friday 22nd January

Hello everybody, it’s Friday again, the last day of our school week. Let’s see what learning we are doing today.


Please listen to our class story of Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers.

Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers

In the story we learnt that they boy and penguin were good friends. Today I want you to think about what you and your friends like to do together. I want you to write some sentences about it and try and use 'and' or 'because' to make your sentences longer. I would love to see your writing and pictures from this activity today please. I've included your word mats to help you.


When we do phonics in school, we normally start with a warm-up recalling our sounds and tricky words.

Today Geraldine is recognising the different ways of spelling the ‘oa’ phoneme (sound). Can you help her?

Long Vowel Letter oa/o-e/ow - English4abc - Phonics song

You can practise recognising the graphemes by playing this game.



Today’s lesson builds on yesterday’s fact families lesson. Today we are going to be working on numbers up to 20. If you haven’t already please take a moment to look at the videos in the link below, for some helpful tips on how we teach maths in Year 1.

Let’s warm up first by doing some counting backwards and forwards. You choose what numbers you would like to count to and back from.

Here is a game you can practise using your addition and subtraction number facts to 20.



After such a wet week I decided we would have a water inspired music session this afternoon!

Enjoy singing and learning the song. There is also a listening activity (sounds of the sea) to play at the bottom of the page.


Keeping active

Why not start the weekend with some dancing? Can you join in with the dancers?

What a fun-filled and exciting week we've had from designing futuristic aeroplanes, to making our own floating boats and even having some snow!


I can't wait for next week!

See you on Monday,

Love Miss Green
