Welcome back to Victoria Park Infant School

Monday 1st February

Good morning everybody it's Monday, the start of our school week. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Now let's get started with today's learning.



First can you watch the video of Journey by Aaron Becker to remind yourselves of the story.

JOURNEY by Aaron Becker

Today you are going to have a go at retelling the story yourself. Wordless books are great for doing this because you can use the illustrations as prompts and tell the story in your own words. There are no right or wrong answers. Everyone will tell the story in their own unique way.


You will need to think about these things before you start:

What does the girl do and why?

What does she see?

How would you describe what she sees? What adjectives can you use?

How is she feeling at different parts of the story?

How have her feeling changed by the end of the journey?


Below I have put the illustrations onto a power point so you can tell the story at your own pace. You do not have to use all the illustrations they are there to help you retell the story.

I have done an example of how to record your voice over the power point and retell a story using lots of extra detail (from your imagination) on how the girl is feeling, why things happen and what can she see (remember to use your adjectives).

If you would like to have a go at doing it this way there are some instructions below to help you.

If not, just ask your adult to record you retelling your story and email it to me or use, if it's too big. I look forward to listening to your stories.


Let's start our lesson with our warm-up to recognise our sounds and tricky words. If you already know all your sounds and tricky words, you can skip this bit.

We are now going to start learning about the different ways you can pronounce some graphemes.

Lesson 41 - Year 1

Word of the day

Today’s word of the day is…


Remember you could practise it in your sentences when you are writing or put it on a piece of paper around the house to practise reading or even challenge your family to see who can spell it from memory the fastest!



Today we are going to be starting a new topic in maths by working with numbers up to 50. The first video today is looking at how we count in tens to 50. If you already know how to do this, you can start straight at video 2 and complete the activity that goes with it.


If you need some more practise there are 2 activities below.



Last week we learnt about what happens inside a Gurdwara (a special place where Sikh's go to pray and come together as a community). Let's start with a little quiz to see how much you remember. Use the link below and add a name to enter (you don't have to use your real name!)

Today we are going to learn how the Guru Granth Sahib (sacred scriptures) helps families to choose a name when their babies are born. Please watch the clip below.

Did you know that people have a first name and a surname and that some people even have a middle name as well? I wonder, do you know how your family chose your name? Maybe you could ask a grown-up and find out.


Most people's surname is their family name, that means you will probably have the same last name as one or both of your parents. In the Sikh religion, most Sikhs have the same surname of Singh or Kaur. This is because Sikhs want to show that they belong to a bigger community of people who all share the same beliefs about God.


For your activity today, I would like you to design a name label for your bedroom door. You could make it as colourful as you want and maybe even do some bubble writing for your name!

Keeping active

Why not finish the day with a dance? Try following this GoNoodle dance.

Well that's the end of another busy day! I hoped you enjoyed yourselves. I'll see you tomorrow,
