This work comes from the Come and See Religious Education programme which is taught in all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Liverpool. We have given a general guide to the learning opportunities that your child may have come across in school and have only suggested and selected a small amount of the programme. The activities aim to keep Religious Education practical and fun. They are in Year groups however, there is no harm in completing other year group work as this will help your child to remember and strengthen their learning. The activities have been adapted as far as possible to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
The first part of learning is called – EXPLORE. This shares your child’s everyday experiences and helps them to see how the Catholic faith is lived in their everyday lives. The second part, called – REVEAL shares bible stories that links to their everyday life.
Please read pages 1, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the Come and See RE Home Learning booklet. Please click on the image for the download link.
During the summer term in Year One, we learn about information texts. These are non-fiction books that are full of facts, they tell us about real life events and can be read in any order. It would be great if you could investigate information texts and get to know some of their features.
The Year 1 teachers have also put together a booklet about fantasy stories, with ideas of books to read to help you create a character and then to write a fantasy adventure story.
Download the documents below for activities to do.
Start by clicking the green button.
Can you find out about:
· Construction – who, when, where, how long? How long/heavy?
· Passengers and crew – how many, who, where from, classes, jobs
· The journey – where did it start, where was it heading, can you plot the route on a map
· The disaster – the timeline of events, the rescue effort
· The shipwreck – when was it found, who found it, what have we learnt
This could be a fact file or poster with the most important facts you found out.
An information text should include: headings and subheadings, pictures, captions. Can you include a labelled drawing of the ship? You could even make a contents page and a glossary for your text!
Remember to make first, second and third class tickets.
You can then role play a fancy dinner in first class!
Could you draw the meals on paper plates or paper?
Here are some clues:
Captain Company Crew Band Lookout Carpathia
Add these facts to your information text.
Can you use materials in your house to make the ship? You could use cardboard boxes, bottles, tubes, felt tips, paints etc. If you can, bring it in when we’re back at school or take a photograph to show us!
Please see the downloadable resources for information PowerPoints, wordsearches, logbook creative writing, role play resources from Twinkl.
We hope you enjoy learning about the Titanic at home!

These short videos are intended to provide primary school pupils with interactive lessons while they are at home. It is important that, within each batch, they are watched in the suggested order. Most lessons are 15 to 20 minutes long, each ending with suggested follow-up tasks. All lessons use the Teaching for Mastery approach to maths that we use in school. Five lessons are added every week. Start with Week 1 Lesson 1.
Click on the image to access the lessons.
A regular daily learning routine will help your child to learn more effectively at home. We therefore recommend that you aim to cover just one 20-30 minute White Rose Maths session each day.

Children in school learn to read and spell some words through the use of phonics.
Phonics lessons often include a new phoneme (sound) pattern for the children to learn. This game groups words by their phoneme. Select a pattern, listen to the word and select the correct egg. Each correct answer gets a scratch on the tree. Each round has ten words. Incorrect answers will be displayed at the end.
APOLOGIES: This particular game does not currently work on iOS devices.
Answer silly questions following phonic patterns taught in Y1.
Children change one sound each time to make a new word.
