Year 1

Welcome Back 

 Hello. We are really looking forward to welcoming children in Year 1 back to school.   It will be great spending time getting to know them and familiarising them again with school life! We know that it is so important that we all feel happy and safe in school so this will be an important focus as we start our journey into Year 1.  If you need to ask us anything, please feel free to send us an e-mail, as we are teaching all day, you may not get a response the same day but we will respond as quickly as possible.  

Thankyou for your support

Mr Branskey and Mrs Plummer



Home Learning Week Beginning 19th October 2020

This work is for any child who is absent from school.


Using the part whole model below can you find different ways of splitting (partitioning) the whole into parts - use resources in your home e.g Lego, pieces of dry pasta, etc

eg. if the whole is 5 you can split it into 

1 and 4, 

2 and 3, 

3 and 2

4 and 1


Can you do this with a different number for the whole?

Can you work in order to make sure you have found all the different ways?




Now you are an expert at splitting the whole into parts can you combine parts to make the whole. 


2 is a part

1 is a part 


The whole is ______?
