Well done for all of the wonderful work everyone is doing at home. We hope you have enjoyed growing the cress.
We are not setting a grid over half term as we think you all deserve a break. You can always keep up with reading and spellings over the week and check out the non-screen activities to see if there are some that you haven't done yet.
Remember to check back on Monday 1st June for our next exciting home learning grid.
Take care and stay safe.
Year One team
Class 4 Update from Mrs Oswald
Hi Class 4! Hope you are all well. Thank you for sending in your questions. Here is my video for you to see what the answers are:
Week Beginning 27th April
We hope that you have been enjoying our bubble themed activities. This week we are going to continue the theme with some exciting new things to explore.
Remember to keep up the great work on Reading Eggs, Mathletics and Bug Club. Don't forget about the phonics and spelling activities on Phonics Play. There is a new address for the website which will make it easier to access on mobiles and tablets. See new link below.
Look back later in the week to find some new non-screen activities.
Class 4 Update - Class Dojos
Children in class 4 will hopefully be receiving over the next few days letters from Mrs Oswald. In those letters, she has mentioned using class dojo for her class. This is a reward system that will be used when we return to school. This is not something the children will be using whilst at home so there is no need to access it at this time. Apologies if there has been any confusion.
Week Beginning 20th April
We hope you and your families have had fun with all the activities over Easter. We have put together another grid for this week based on a story called ‘Bubbles.’ We hope you enjoy the activities and remember you can always send in some pictures of your work to the school office for us to see.
We have also added some links to different websites and activities for you to have a look at.
Year 1 Team
We hope you are all managing to enjoy your time at home. Please continue to use all the suggestions below, and the websites including numbots, mathletics, reading eggs and bug club.
For extra phonics support: the creators of Read Write Inc are releasing daily phonics teaching videos on their YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ
They also have added a set of Read Write Inc books and a lot of extra information to Oxford Owl https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/
Finally, we had been looking at the book This is Not My Hat in English - today another book by the same author is being performed and streamed here and will be available for 14 days. https://littleangeltheatre.com/news/little-angel-theatre-to-stream-ian-nicholsons-performance-of-i-want-my-hat-back/
Weeks beginning 6th & 13th April
We have put together some activities for you to choose from over the next two weeks. Please don't feel you have to do them all but pick the ones that you would like. Remember that you can access the online learning activities.
You can also complete writing activities based on the story Sidney Spider. Please don't worry if you can't print the activities, these can be completed in your home learning book.
Reading Eggs Update – Class 6
It has been brought to our attention that when assignments have been set, access to
other activities are blocked until they have been completed. Assignments have now been removed and the children will start at the activity generated from the online assessment they completed on the last day of school. The children will now be able to work through these at their own pace. Reading Eggspress can also be accessed for comprehension activities. They will need to complete the assessment task independently for this if they have not done so already so that they are allocated an appropriate starting point.
We are all getting used to using Reading Eggs as it is new for all of us.
Many thanks for your understanding and continued support.
Week beginning 30th March
We hope you and your families are keeping well. Well done to everyone who has managed to access the online learning. We are constantly monitoring and updating it as you run out of books and other activities. Below is a grid with some suggestions for this week. Please pick some that you would like to do. Remember to access the books and activities available online with your logins too.
Please also see Mrs Millington's creative writing challenge below, and don't forget to check out Miss Charman's challenge every day in the school information tab on this website.

Each class will have Forest School separately for half a term.
Class 4 will be going out on Friday afternoons this half term (Autumn 1). Class 5 will have their turn after October half term (Autumn 2), and class 6 will be after Christmas (Spring 1).
