SEND Support - A Note from Nichola Jones (Assistant Director Inclusion, SEND and Wellbeing)


Dear Parent,

I hope you and your family are well. I’m getting in touch to invite you to take part in our short survey to share your experiences during lockdown and tell us your views on the support you have received from different education services.

Please complete one survey for each child or young person with SEND. The survey is anonymous, however you can choose to include your contact details at the end if you would like to be more involved in shaping future SEND services.

Click here to access the survey

Please feel free to forward this email on to other families of children and young people with SEND.

Thank you for taking part. We really value your feedback in helping us to monitor and continually improve our services for SEND families.  

Please note that the survey will close at 12 midnight on Monday 13 July 2020.

With very best wishes,

Nichola Jones

๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ Logo design ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ 


In the picture above are lots of different “logos” for different products or companies. I wonder how many you recognise? ๐Ÿค” 
Here at Timberley our main logo is our Timberley Tree ๐ŸŒณ 


But we are looking for something new ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐ŸŒŸ 


Next year (Sep 2020) we are revamping our curriculum, we will be focusing more on 6 personal goals: 


Independence, Resilience, Co-operation, Communication, Respect, Thoughtfulness.


We would love for you to have a think about what those words mean to you and see if you can design a logo that we can attach to our new curriculum ๐Ÿ–ผ 

Parents/Carers you’re more than welcome to have a go at designing a logo too ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐ŸŽจ 


Send your ideas and logo designs to Mrs Bailey when you’re done โœ… ๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ’ป ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿ’ป

We are really missing reading to/with you all. With it being Pyjamarama day on Friday we thought we would share some pictures of the Y1 staff sharing some of their favourite stories this weekend ๐Ÿค—. 


We would love to see or hear about yours ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ“–! 


Mrs Fox has sent a message to you all-


Hi Year One ๐Ÿฅฐ


I have been joining in with today’s Pyjamarama activities with my favourite author. I do love David Walliams ๐Ÿ’“! I read my book to my dog, Daisy ๐Ÿถ. 

My favourite chapter in this book is Bonnie Bossypants. She is soooo awful until Wonder Nanny comes to visit ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿป. The bit I thought was gross was when Bonnie collected lots of cheese, including foot cheese ๐Ÿง€! Yuck! ๐Ÿคข Then Wonder Nanny got her own back by sending lots of spiders to Bonnie’s house ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿ˜ฎ! Bonnie doesn’t like spiders at all, I wonder if that made her behave? ๐Ÿค”

Enjoy your pj day, we would love to hear about the books you’ve been reading and what you have enjoyed about three ๐Ÿ“š.

Love Mrs Fox (and Daisy) xxx 



Darcey loved  our Snail and the Whale story ๐ŸŒ ๐Ÿณ but at the moment her favourite story is Stickman so we read that A LOT and she joins in with “I’m Stickman, I’m Stickman, I’m Stickman that’s me”


Miss Morris, Miss Lindsey and Mrs Collins have been reading their favourite stories this weekend too ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ’“

Friday 1st May ๐ŸŒˆ


Good morning everyone ๐Ÿฅฐ!


Today is such an exciting day, it’s PYJAMARAMA day!! ๐Ÿ“– Oh I wish we were at school for today, we would have all come in in our PJs and shared stories together and drank hot chocolate and had a lovely day ๐ŸŒŸ

Cosmic Kids has an Easter themed yoga video for you to take part in



In Year 1, we love a game of ‘Would You Rather?’ to get us talking, so I have  attached a game below that you can play with your family and you can talk about why you would rather. I wonder if your ideas will be the same or different ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜„ 




Another way to improve our wellbeing is by spreading kindness around ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒˆ Here are some ideas for how you can spread kindness today ๐Ÿฅฐ.


โญ๏ธ Make a drink for someone ๐Ÿฅค 

โญ๏ธ Help the person looking after you ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿป 

โญ๏ธ Give someone a compliment ๐Ÿ˜

โญ๏ธ Colour a picture for a friend ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐ŸŽจ

โญ๏ธ Call or send a message to a family member or a friend, if you can ๐Ÿ“ฑ

Letters to Year 1 ๐Ÿ’“

Thursday 2nd April 


Good morning, Year 1! 

I hope you all had a fantastic day yesterday, filled with fun and a little bit of learning!

We have been thinking about what today's challenge could be! We thought how about Throwback Thursday
Spend some time looking back through old photos of you and other people in your family. Can you work out who is in the photo? Can you see any similar features? Can you see any differences between yourself and other people in your family? We would love to see some of these when we can all be back together again! 

We have heard that some of you fantastic children have managed to complete all of your paper home learning that was sent out. Parents, there is a link below to a website that have put together free home learning packs for children to complete. They are based on year groups so are quite useful! There’s also today’s scavenger hunt below.

The weather isn’t looking brilliant today, but I plan to go out for my daily exercise later on. Fingers crossed it doesn’t rain on me! I might even sit and enjoy another Disney movie this afternoon- I’m thinking Aladdin would be a choice for today! 

Whatever you are up to today, remember we all miss you very much and can’t wait to see you all. Also remember, we want you to stay save! 

See you soon. 
The Year 1 Team ๐Ÿฅฐ

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

We miss you, Year 1 ๐Ÿ˜ข

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 

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

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!

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 ๐Ÿฅฐ

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.
