Scroll down for all learning at home activities for week 2.
Monday 30th March
Good morning you lovely lot!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend, relaxing and playing in the sunshine. Aren't we lucky with the weather at the moment? Let's hope it continues; we have had more than enough rain for one year!
This week, as well as doing our usual Phonics, Reading, Maths and PE lessons, we will also be exploring Easter through some RE activities.
Mrs Webb, Miss Strange and Miss Curnow
Let's start the week with a Joe Wicks workout. Remember it is important to keep our brains and our bodies in shape!
Good Morning everybody. Well done on your spelling test last week, I bet you all did a SUPER job! Our new tag words of the week are: Mr, Mrs, friend and love.
Today we will be learning about different ways to spell words which have the 'igh' phoneme (sound) in. As always, we will start by recapping the sounds we have learnt so far! Have your green books at the ready for a very HOT challenge at the end of the slides.
Have fun Year 1.
Yay- Easter is nearly here! You are probably getting excited about the Easter Bunny and hunting for chocolate eggs! But have you ever thought about why we have eggs at Easter? Well, it all started with a story about Jesus that Christians have been telling for thousands of years. The story is in the Christians' special book, the Bible, but you can read it later this week in a slideshow. We will be thinking about sadness and happiness and how the Easter story has a bit of both. You will need to have your thinking hats on and be ready to consider lots of questions. This might be a challenge for some of you; you may find that some members of your family have different ideas to you and that's OK. Just listen politely to everyone and then you can make up your own mind.
Remember: in RE, no-one is right and no-one is wrong!
But first... please watch a story called 'Badger's Parting Gifts'. It has some sad bits in it but don't worry, it has a happy ending. Listen carefully and answer the questions below at the end.
Now talk with your grown-up:
Which parts of the story were sad?
Which parts were happy?
What 'gifts' did Badger leave his friends?
If you were Badger, what would you leave for your friends so they could always remember you?

Good morning Year 1!
We made it through our first week together. Hope you have enjoyed our challenges and kept those brains in good working order. Don't forget though, it is just as important to keep active and get out in the sunshine if you can. Don't spend all your time glued to the computer!
Today is the last day of the virtual school week and then you can have a couple of days rest. More learning will be posted on Monday so, until then, have fun and stay well-behaved for your brilliant new home teachers. Have a lovely weekend!

Spellings (Friday 27.3.20)
Just like any Friday at school, we won't have a Phonics lesson today. Instead your grown-up can test you on the four tag words you have focused on this week. Can you read them really quickly? Can you spell them too?
Thursday 26th March 2020
Good Morning Year 1! Happy Thursday to you all.
Can you believe we are nearly at the end of the first week of our online learning journey?
We have tried to keep it as normal as possible for you all. Always check this page as it will be updated daily. To all of the special mummies and daddies out there teaching your children, I just wanted to say... YOU ARE DOING A SUPER JOB! Enjoy this time with your children, please do the online learning but also use this as a perfect opportunity to teach your children some life skills like cooking and cleaning or even learning a new skill.
I have a VERY important mission for our lovely Year 1 children today...watch this space.
Lots of love,
Miss Curnow, Mrs Webb and Miss Strange x
P.E - Joe Wicks (26.03.20)
Let's start our day with a Joe Wicks workout. Exercise is so important to keep us fit, healthy and happy.
Today in phonics we are going to spend one last day learning about the different ways to spell words which have the 'ch' phoneme (sound) in. We have lots of words for you to read today- make sure you are robotting (sounding out) if you need to. As always, we will start with recapping all of the sounds we have learnt in Year 1 so far...
Today in Maths we will be learning about the word 'mass'. We have a special song for you to help you learn and an activity for you too.
Let's start our session today with some Mental Maths. Can you count in ones all the way up to 100? What about backwards from 100? Have a go!
Special mission for Year 1 (26.3.20)
Hello Year 1. I have received a very important message from my special friend and I just knew that you would all LOVE this mission because it is all about being a bucket filler!
Head over to Youtube to watch the story of “Have you filled a bucket today?” By Carol McCloud if you can’t quite remember what a bucket filler is. The link is below.
Then follow the slides below to reveal your special mission.
Wednesday 25th March 2020
Good Morning you amazing Year 1s! It is the third day of our online learning and we hope you are having a great time learning from home. We know it can be difficult but we want you to keep going because you are all awesome. Keep looking at the website because we will keep updating it with new and wonderful things.
Enjoy the lovely sunshine.
Lots of love Miss Strange, Mrs Webb, and Miss Curnow
Mindfulness Challenges (25.3.20)
Today we are learning about the different ways to spell words which have the 'ch' phoneme in. Have a look through the slides and see what challenge you can get to today. Remember to keep practicing all of your sounds.
Today in maths we are continuing with weight. We are going to be using our reasoning skills to answer some questions so remember to use that conjunction 'because'!
Let's do some handwriting! Head over to Home - Learning - Supporting Your Childs Learning - English - Handwriting. Have a look at our videos and practice those lead ins and lead outs!
To finish off the day have a look at our story videos in Children - Story Time and watch Miss Strange read 'The Very Hungry Worry Monster'.
Have a think about what worries you and maybe what your monster would look like. Maybe you could draw your monster and put them up somewhere you will see them everyday so that they can eat all your worries away!
Here is some ideas to get you started:
Tuesday 24th March 2020
Good Morning Year 1. Isn't it such a beautiful day today? It is really starting to feel like springtime now! Are you all ready for day 2 of our online learning adventure? Keep on checking the website for new learning which will be uploaded throughout the day.
Lots of love,
Miss Curnow, Mrs Webb and Miss Strange x
P.E - Cosmic Kids Yoga (24.3.20)
Let's start our day today with some peaceful, calming yoga!
Follow the link below to start your yoga session today- we are all giving it a go too!
Today in phonics we are spending one more day learning about the different ways to spell words which have the 'ee' sound in. We have a special mission for you to complete today and even a SUPER HOT chilli challenge at the end of our phonics session.
As always, we'll start with the tag words of the week and sounds that we should know first. Work your way through the slides and use your special green books to record your work.
This week we are learning all about weight in our Maths sessions.
Did you have fun yesterday searching for things that were heavier or lighter than your shoe? I wonder what items you found! Today we will begin to compare weight. Look at the slides below- choose 3 items around your house to compare.
Make sure you write this in your special green books.
When you have finished, can you find 3 new items to compare?
Let's get started... but first, as always, we will get our brains ready by doing our daily Mental Maths. Today, we are challenging ourselves to count in 5s.
Have a go at reading this lovely story called "The Zoo Vet".
Remember if you get stuck on a word, try and robot it. You can even use your sound mats which are in your home learning packs. At the end of the story there are some chilli challenges waiting for you which vary in difficulty: Mild which is quite simple, Spicy which is a little bit harder and finally there is a HOT challenge which is the hardest.
You may choose to read the story today and answer the questions tomorrow... that is fine, too!
Happy Reading Year 1.
Monday 23rd March 2020.
Good morning you amazing Year 1 children. We hope you have had a restful weekend and you are ready for our new online learning adventure together! This is new for all of us and I am sure there will be some bumps in the road but as a team we can navigate our way through this learning journey together. We might make some mistakes along the way but mistakes are good right? We learn from them! We always bounce back and we never give up. We will be posting some daily and weekly lessons here as well as some links for singing assembly and Joe Wicks PE lessons...watch this space...
Lots of love,
Miss Curnow, Mrs Webb and Miss Strange x
Today we are going to be learning different ways to spell words with the 'ee' phoneme in.
Scroll through the slides to find out what to do. As always, each day you can challenge yourself to see how quickly you can read the phase 3 and 5 sounds we have already learnt!
Please make sure you always start on slide 1 of the slideshow to make sure you don't miss any important information. You can click pause if you don't want the slide to move on automatically. Record everything in your special green books- remembering to put today's date.
The chilli challenges vary in difficulty- will you brave the HOT challenge today?!
This week we will be learning about measuring and comparing weight. Every day the slides will start with a "Mental Maths" warm up to kick-start your mathematic brains! You might want to get out your 100 square to help you.
The other slides may have a little challenge or mission for you to complete around your house. Always try and record this in your special green books. Let's start the week with something fun and practical...
Week 1: Project learning (DT)
This is an activity that you should complete during this week (23.3.20 - 29.3.20) but you can choose which day you would like to do it or you can do a little bit each day.
We are learning to evaluate our Roaming Rovers.
Have a look at your amazing Rovers that you have been busy making for NASA.
Think carefully about the following questions and answer them in your green books.
What makes your rover special?
What do you really like about it?
If you could make it again what would you change?
Use the word bank and sentence starters below to help you:
"My rover is special because..."
“I like my rover because…”
“Next time I would…”
CHALLENGE: Can you create a Terrain to test your rover on? Think about the different materials and terrains we experimented with in class.
Note to parents: If you have not yet collected your child’s rover I am afraid that due to restrictions on non-essential journeys and public lockdown measures from 24th March this will no longer be possible.
