Thank you so much for all of the work you have been doing at home. You are all superstars! I have added extra work for Maths, English and Phonics for the next couple of weeks (beginning 4th May.) Keep checking the website for extra activities. As always, please feel free to do as much as these activities as you wish.
In light of the current situation, please use this website and the home learning packs sent out to continue to educate your child at home.
The packs have been split up into different learning areas to suit the needs of the year 1 children. There are activities to support phonics, English and maths learning as well as activities to complete in the afternoon.
Please could the children, with your support and guidance, complete the work to the best of their ability and stick any work into the learning journals which have also been sent home.
All of the children have got their log in details for purple mash, there are many activities on this platform to help support learning. Their personal login details for this are written in the front of their reading record book.
Other online links:
The children have been signed up to Oxford Owl which has ebooks for them to use as reading books during the closure. Please could you write in their reading record book what books they have read.
There are also many ideas for different activities for the children to choose from in the afternoon. Please feel free to take pictures of children going above and beyond to develop other skills such as cooking, gardening and cleaning!
Thank you for your continued support, especially during these tricky times. It is greatly appreciated.

Our Class Routines...
Children's reading books should be placed in the class box every morning for checking and exchanging, please make sure your child has their book in school every day.
- We have P.E. lessons on Monday afternoons and Wednesday mornings.
- We have library time every day during our Guided Reading session. The children can choose a book and change it the follwoing week if they wish to.
- We have our spelling test on a Friday morning and new spellings will be sent out weekly if the children are ready to move on. This will begin after the October half term.
- Children should have their P.E. Kits, reading books and reading records in school every day.
- Children have free access to fruit and water as a snack at break times.
During the Autumn Term in Year One, our continuous provision learning trays are set up and available for children to access independently to challenge and support their learning in a meaningful way. Although we now have structured lessons, each area is planned to suit the needs of all children and a variety of resources are always available to ensure your child is able to practise the skills and tasks which interest them. All children will be allowed access either when they have finished a guided activity or as part of a guided activity where appropriate. Some children may spend more/less time in the given areas as they continue their development through year one based on their individual needs.

In Year One we begin to practice cursive script. If you wish to practice at home, there are some handwriting worksheets available below.
