Year 1 - Learning at Home

A big hello to Year One from Mrs Gardner

Mrs Gardner returns from maternity leave to join Year One.

Week beginning 8th June


Although some of us are returning to school over the next two weeks, we are still very much one class, one year group and one team.


We plan on following the same topics in school (although adapted and modified where appropriate) and all children will be set the same work and cover the same objectives whether they are at home, in group A or group B.


This will ensure we are all continuing at the same pace.


For the weeks that groups A or B are not in school, they should continue to follow the same home learning planning set each week on Year 1's home learning page on the school website.


We look forward to continue to support ALL our children whether remotely or in person. 


If you have any questions over the coming weeks, please don't hesitate to contact us through the year group email.


Regards, Year 1 team.

Happy Half Term!

We cannot believe how quickly these last few months have flown by since school closed for most of you. The next two weeks are officially half term so there will be no home learning this week and we will put some fun activities on for the first week of June for you do to if you want to.

We are so pleased with how each of you have been working hard at home: we know it's been a tough juggling act for a lot of our families (us included) and want to say THANK YOU for sending in photos, sharing ideas and the support we have had from you all. 

Some of the teachers are still planning to ring up each family over the next two weeks, thanks again for those who have sent updated phone numbers. If we do not get in touch with you first time round, we will call you back (the office cannot always put you back through to us). It has been lovely to speak to the children so far and we can't wait to speak to the rest.

Enjoy these next two weeks

Week Beginning: 18th May


Hello everyone! We've got one more week to go before the half-term break, so well done for all your hard work and keep going! This week we've set you some new English work based on Rapunzel or Ninjago. Please feel free to adapt this to suit your own needs. Some children may only want to write a few words, others may wish to write simple sentences or even a full story.


For topic we're going to develop those skills in Computer Science, by making an animated story linked to our English work. We've included a list of suggested actvities and are using Purple Mash '2Create' to support our learning.


For Maths please continue to use the White Rose, BBC bitesize, or a combination of the two; it's always great to see you utilising the practical suggestions that Mrs Bonser lists too!


Have a super fun week - we shall look forward to seeing and hearing about all the activties you get up to.


Daily Tasks

(Select year one, then choose a book from the shelf to practise different tricky word spellings)

Communication with school

We are delighted at the number of families we have heard from on email with updates and photographs of their learning. Over the coming weeks, your class teacher will be calling to check-in with you. This will be on the days they are due to be in school and will of course take a few different days to complete. If you know the office do not have your most up-to-date phone number, please could you email your teacher to confirm the correct number on 


We look forward to speaking to the children and in the meantime please keep us updated on email.

Year 1 Team.

Week beg 11th May


VE Day celebrations paired with glorious sunshine, were definitely a plenty over this bank holiday weekend! Great to hear that you've enjoyed the blackout experiments along with spitfire plane creating and reflection activties. Keep going with your fantastic Maths work too. We hope mixing up the White Rose and BBC bitesize has been useful.


Everyone is working so hard (children and parents) and we really appreciate your efforts! Thank you for all the positive feedback - it's really useful for us to know what you feel works and is useful. We genuinely appreciate any feedback surrounding home-learning, as we want to tailor the work as best we can.


This week we will be continuing with our Topic on Hot and Cold climates (we hope you remembered to keep those 'hot' and 'cold' boxes) with Topic and English combined.


Have a fantastic week!

Happy Easter to you all!


Easter is a festival that some Christians celebrate, it celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  It is the oldest Christian tradition and considered the most important.  After Jesus was crucified and subsequently died, he was buried in a tomb.  Many believe he then rose from the dead on Easter Sunday and is with us in spirit.

Discuss if you liked the video or not.  Why do you like/not like the video?

Dear Parents,

Welcome to our ‘Home Learning’ page.

This page has been set up to help our children to access learning from home after the announcement of school closures by the Prime Minister on Wednesday 18th March 2020. 

Please check these pages on a weekly basis for information regarding home learning.

We would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our parents for their continued support and wish everyone a safe and quick return to normality (whenever that maybe).
