Hello everyone. I hope you had a restful and fun half term. This week, please log into Purple Mash every day for a range of activities to complete. Also, click on this link https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ each day to view a different RWI phonics video. You can also download the Top 10 maths skills document at the top of the page and continue to practise these with your child. Keep reading books together as a family too. Have a great week and we will hopefully see you soon! :)

No work will be set this week. Have a well deserved rest, make lots of memories and have a great half term. We are looking forward to seeing you all soon!
Week beginning 18.5.20
Hello everyone! First of all, I would like to say how much I enjoyed speaking to all of you on the phone last week. It was so nice hearing about all of the wonderful things that you are doing at home. This week marks the final week of home learning until half term. Below are some activities that you and your child could attempt this week:
Have fun learning and please feel free to upload any of your learning to the school blog. Most importantly, stay safe, make memories with loved ones and hopefully I will see you soon!
Week beginning 11.5.20
I hope that you are all well and are continuing to work hard at home each day. Below are some activities that you and your child could attempt this week:
Have a good week. Please do not feel that you have to complete all of the activities. Do what you feel is right for your child. Other activities such as cooking, gardening, Lego, art, drawing, making etc. are just as helpful to children.
I am looking forward to phoning all of you this week! :) Take care and enjoy your learning!
Week beginning 4.5.20
I hope that you and your family are all well. Today marks the second week of this half term. Please log into Purple Mash each day for new activities that you can complete. Furthermore, the creative writing, ‘no electronics’ and Lego challenge pages are updated daily so please use these if you wish.
This week is a unique one because Friday is a bank holiday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. It is a very special time where we remember the actions of many, many brave men and women. If you choose to, please complete some (or all) of the tasks below. You could upload your learning to the Purple Mash blog.
1. Firstly, carry out some research with an adult about VE Day and why it is so important to remember it.
2. Create your own red, white & blue bunting. There is a great free bunting template which you can download here. Grab your paints, crayons, pens and crafting materials and get busy! Once the designs are complete, simply cut out the flags and attach them together with ribbon or string!
3. Design your own VE Day party hat and have a competition for the best design in your home! With an adult, grab some old newspaper, PVA glue, some balloons, some paint or anything else that you can find.
4. There are lots of other great activities that can be found at the link below such as making your own medals! Enjoy!
Have a great week and please keep in touch via our blog.
Take care J
Week beginning 27.4.20
Hi everyone. I hope you are all keeping well and are showing green behaviour for your adults at home. Today starts the second week of the first summer half term in your new class rooms at home. As part of your learning this week, I want you and an adult to click onto the big 'Year 1 Summer' star link above. It has lots of fun and helpful activities for you to complete. Please explore the links and start to work your way through them. Also, I want you to keep logging into Purple Mash. Each day, there will be reading, writing, maths and topic tasks set for you. Furthermore, the links above (no electronics challenge etc.) are updated daily so give them a go if you wish.
You don't have to complete all of the activities here and on Purple Mash. Do what you and your parent/ carer think is right. Completing other activities such as cooking and junk modelling could be included in your daily timetables too.
Please keep in touch via our blog on Purple Mash. I miss you all so it would be lovely to hear from you!
Take care :)
If possible, it would be great if you could do some gardening at home. Maybe an adult could help you to plant some seeds. If you have a garden, you could help an adult to water the plants etc.
I would like you to find out more about early aviation. Watch footage of people’s early flight attempts here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7OJvv4LG9M. Afterwards, watch a simplified version of the classic Greek myth ‘Story of Icarus’ that is told using interpretive dance https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/once-upon-a-time-icarus-no-narration/zf7xnrd. Read the summary on the page and, with an adult, research more about the story. Finally, act out the story creating your own character dialogue. Alternatively, you could write the story in your own words.
We would have been learning about Hinduism during this summer half term so, at home this week, I would like you to learn about a special place of worship for Hindus. Click on the link at the bottom of the page called 'Places of Worship.' Read through the PowerPoint and then complete the vocabulary activity. Afterwards, teach somebody else in your house about the new words that you have learned.
Click here to download them!Learning to read and write these words is crucial!
Enjoy your learning this week! Take care :)
Week beginning 30.3.20
Firstly, I hope that you are all keeping well and have enjoyed your first week in your new classrooms at home. I am sure that you are all showing green behaviour for your parents and carers and are continuing to work as hard at home as you have been at school.
Below are some activities that you could do at home:
Click on the link below to explore the UK. Read the information and watch the videos to also learn about the different seasons.
Afterwards, label the different countries and capital cities that are in the UK.
Finally, read the World words. You could draw a picture to show what each word means in order to better understand and remember them.
Learn more about Christianity. Specifically, the web page below tells the story of Jesus's crucifixion, his rising from the tomb three days later to the delight of his followers and his ascension to Heaven.
After watching the video and reading the key information with an adult, you could act out different parts of the story, showing clearly how the different characters would have been feeling at that part of the story.
Alternatively, you could write the story in your own words or write it as a comic strip.
Time to be a scientist!
Help! The weather forecast is predicting lots of rain over the next few days. I would like you to perform some simple tests to find out which material would be most suitable for a new coat that I would like to buy.
With an adult, find some different materials from around your home to test to see whether they are waterproof or not waterproof.
Add a small amount of water (10ml?) to each material and observe what happens. Is the material waterproof? Test each material and decide which one is the best material for my new coat.
Log into our Purple Mash blog and tell me what material my new coat should be made of.
Please download and practise reading and writing the Year 1 common exception words. Focus on around 10 each week. Look for strategies that you can use to help remember them. When you can read and write all of them, start looking at the Year 2 words. Learning to read and write these words is crucial! Click here to download them!
Practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s whilst having a dance! Click the link below:
In addition to the activities above, please log into Purple Mash regularly. I will be uploading a piece of reading, writing, maths and topic each school day for you to complete. There are also games that you can play.
The ‘30 Day Lego’ and ‘No Electronics’ Challenge are updated each school day with new activities for you to attempt by yourself or with your family.
The ‘Creative Writing’ link is also updated each school day with a new picture for you to practise your English skills.
The ‘Maths’ and ‘Phonics’ pages have updated lessons each school day for you to keep learning too!
All of your Purple Mash learning that you do will be uploaded and saved into your pupil folder automatically. Please feel free to upload any learning that you do from our web page on the Purple Mash blog too. Alternatively, please log into the blog just to say hi.
I miss you all! Take care and keep showing green behaviour at home for your parents and carers :)
