Good morning everybody 🥰!

We hope you had a lovely weekend and you’re ready for another week of learning from home. There are lots of different activities set on Purple Mash, Mathletics and Education City so have a look and have a go. Well done to those children who have completed last weeks too🥰

We will keep posting different ideas on here, so remember to check back each day. This week we are going to be setting a daily “hunt” that you can do around your house. I wonder how many things you can find!


We hope you are all staying safe and well!

Missing our marvellous maths and super speedy sound sessions??


Well, White Rose Maths have opened a “home learning hub” on their website. They are releasing a lesson a day with a short video clip and an activity to complete. 
We are currently looking at weight, mass, capacity and volume. Which can be really fun and easy to explore at home too. ⚖️
Have a look 🥰


Read Write Inc. are also sharing a speed sounds lessons each day on their YouTube too! I wonder if you can spot the special friends and show your families what super phonics stars you are ⭐️ 


Speed Sounds Set 1- 9.30am

Speed Sounds Set 2 – 10.00 am

Friday 27th March


Wow Year 1 it is Friday already 🥰!


You’ve finished a whole week of learning from home. Well done to all of those children who have managed to logon to numbots, purple mash or education city and completed the work we have set. 

This weekend the weather is meant to get a bit cooler so I am planning on snuggling up and watching a film (hopefully Frozen 2), reading my favourite book, maybe playing a board game with my family and finally making a rainbow to put in her window! I hope you have some lovely plans too and remember stay safe! 

Keep checking back on here next week as we have some lovely ideas and surprises planned.


Missing you,


Mrs Bailey, Mrs Collins, Mrs Fox, Mrs Male, Miss Morris and Miss Lindsey 

We miss you, Year 1 😢

Thursday 26th March


We hope you are having a lovely day so far! The sun is shining and we are thinking about who is making the most of the sun, in a safe way. Maybe, you could do Joe Wicks PE sessions outside! There are lots of other online activities that you can complete. Oti Mabuse is doing a daily dance lesson on her YouTube channel, too! 


We have signed you all up to a free website where you can access lots of different books for free! All the details are below. You can access this through the website or via the app, which is free to download. We wonder who will read the most books. There are also little quizzes to complete at the end of some books. 


Have fun reading!

lots of love

Us again!


We heard that the internet isn't work properly, but didn't want you to miss out on the fun! We have been busy thinking of some fun activities for you to complete at home. We would love to see some of your fantastic work when we can all be together again! Parents, please see the document below. 


We wonder who can come back to school and say they have learnt to tie their shoes laces or have learnt how to make a sandwich? smiley


Keep working hard and learn new things! 


We miss you all!


Home Learning without the internet!

Hello Year 1 smiley

Wow, we miss you so much already!! We hope that you are staying safe heart!

What lovely weather we have had this week, we hope you get the chance to get out in the fresh air at some point. But, we will keep updating the website with lots of activities to keep you busy too. 

Keep safe, we can’t wait to see you all again soon!


lots of love Mrs Bailey, Mrs Collins, Mrs Fox, Mrs Male, Miss Morris and Miss Lindsey 🥰

5 Minute Move | Kids Workout 1 | The Body Coach TV

Keep moving and having fun with these 5 minute workouts. Easy to do at home or in the classroom :)

When we need to relax, we use Cosmic Kids Yoga.

Which one will you choose?
Frozen? Minions? Or maybe some Guided Relaxation?

Jack Hartmann songs help us count and get us moving.

We use Jack Hartmann's Kids Music Channel in our maths lessons.
At the minute we love the counting to 50 song and we have recently been practising counting in 2s and 5s too.
Which song is your favourite?



All children have been given a log on to the excited new app Numbots. In class, we will be sharing the achievements of the children on the app so please encourage your child to play every week. It is really important that all children have a quick recall of number facts to aid their progress in Maths. Numbots supports this and is a stepping stone for children when the start playing Times Table Rock Stars in Year 2.


Any issues with logging on, please let us know so we can look into this for you.


Have fun!



Please practise reading these sounds and words at home :).

Our First Week in Year 1

Our Special Bonfire Day


On Tuesday 5th November, Year 1 had a special Bonfire Day. This was part of our Entry Point for our new project 'Time Travellers'. This also linked to UK Parliament Week.


We started the day off watching a firework display and eating popcorn. During the day,  we toasted marshmallows on the fire in Forest School, made toffee apples and had a special party.


We are looking forward our new project which will include a trip to Blakelsey Hall.

Inspire Workshop


Thank you to all those that took time out to attend our Inspire Workshops. We hope you enjoyed spending time with your children exploring a variety of Maths activities.


Numbots is now available for all of the children to access at home. All children were given their own logon. Any issues, please do not hesitate to ask. Have lots of Maths fun!

Our Special Bonfire Day



We hope you all had a fantastic summer and have made some lovely memories with your children. We have had a great start to the new academic year.  All the children have settled in to life in Year 1 really quickly. They look so grown up in their school uniforms and have been making sure they keep all clothing together, in the correct places. We would ask that all clothing is labelled so that we can return any items to their owner. In any cases where property has been lost, there are now lost property bins at the main office where all items will be placed for parents retrieve.


We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the children through the items that they bought in to share with us. On our first day, the children completed their very first piece of writing in Year 1 and we are so proud of how hard they worked on this. We are so excited to see how their reading and writing progress over the year. In Maths, the children have been using equipment to demonstrate their fantastic knowledge of numbers, which has amazed us.


This year, PE will take place on a Monday afternoon. Please ensure that your children has the correct PE kit in school. This is a white t-shirt, black shorts and a pair of pumps/trainers. Again, please ensure that all items are clearly labelled. We ask that PE kits are kept in school until the end of the half-term when children can bring them home to be washed.


The children have all been issued with a home-reading book and a diary. The children were very excited about this and could not wait to share their book with you. When you have read with your child, please sign their diary and once their book is complete, they can place it in the 'to-be-changed' box in school. There are no set days for reading books to be changed in Year 1. The children will receive rewards for the more books that they read.


We are all so excited for the year ahead. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us.
