Year 1 Remote Learning

Welcome to the Y1 Remote Learning webpage. Please see links below that your child can use to access our remote learning curriculum. 

Microsoft Teams




Seesaw is a digital platform that we use to share work between school and home and a way of teachers sharing learning in the classroom. As part of our remote learning, teachers will be uploading tasks for pupils to complete. There is a useful Seesaw Parent Guide that can help parents understand how the site works.


Please log onto Seesaw for daily Phonics activities. We will be looking at a different sound each day and working on some tricky words too. There will be a link for each sound posted to take you to the virtual classroom. You will be able to hear the sounds very clearly here. Don't forget there are lots of things you can do at home to help your reading too. Why don't you be a Phoneme Detective and have a look in your reading booking and see what letters you can spot? Or maybe you could have a go at practising your phonics using chalk or magnetic letters. You could even write some tricky words on individual pieces of paper and ask someboy to play splat. Who can splat the word you say first? Have a look on the Reading Eggs app - there are lots of games to play, activities to do and books to read! You have your login details in the front of your Reading Record. 


MyMaths is an online programme that gives lessons and activities for children to complete.  Please make sure to work through the lesson first using the numbers down the side and then complete each part of the task.  Your teacher can see how you are doing and reset tasks if you need more practise.  You will have been assigned tasks to complete and will see these when you log in.


Your child has been given access to the online reading programme 'Reading Eggs'. You can access the website here and also download the Reading Eggs app to a smartphone or tablet.

Each child in Year 1 has their own username and password to enable them to access these reading and phonics games at home to support learning. These will be in your child's reading record. Teachers will set tasks and children will be able to access a range of games and activities.

Please also continue to read daily with your child and share their favourite stories to support early reading skills and encourage a love of reading.


myON is a fantastic digital library with over a thousand eBooks for your child to choose from. These books are linked to the Accelerated Reader (AR) programme that we already use in school, allowing your child to select age and ability appropriate books through their ZPD. This can be linked to your child’s AR account when first logging in, using the ‘Connect Now’ option located at the top of the home page. Please see this video for further instruction.

Spelling Shed is a spelling practice website and app with digital games and activities, with a facility for them to test themselves to check their own learning. Your child’s weekly spellings will be loaded into the online platform and assigned each Friday. Over the course of the week, they can then use the Spelling Shed app or website to play a variety of games and activities to help them learn these. Their spelling test will take place as usual each Friday.

Letter-join is a cursive handwriting scheme being used both in school and remotely, including handwriting activities, online games and step by step instructional videos which model the process of letter formation and joined handwriting. Your child’s handwriting slot will be timetabled using the daily announcement on Microsoft Teams so that children know when to use it. They will also be instructed which part to access and to focus on. 


BBC Bitesize is a great website to continue learning scientific facts and developing scientific skills. There are lots of quizzes, interactive games and videos. 

During Spring 1, Year 1 are learning about every day materials. 


Language Angels is an online language programme that gives interactive games for children to practise their Spanish skills. All pupils have an individual login and your teacher will be able to view the games you have been playing.


Here are some links for other areas of the curriculum as well as the current topic children are learning about.
