Homework - 25th September


Please see Purple Mash for the next chapter of Ned and the Three Bears. Children should have brought home this week's phonics sheet.


A few photos of what we've been up to this week... Exploring dips in D&T, investigating symmetry in maths, creating a Harvest display of our favourite fruit and vegetables in RE and learning to log on to the computers and explore Purple Mash.

Homework - 18th September


Below is this week's phonics homework, which is being sent home on Friday. Last week's is here too, in case you need it.


Two books will also be sent home, to be returned next Thursday. We will be benchmarking all children over the coming weeks, to check they're on the right level reading band. Please note that children need to be able to understand the text as well as being able to read the words. Books sent home are at the child's level, while books we read in guided reading sessions may be at a slightly higher level.


I have set the second chapter of 'Ned and the Three Bears' on Purple Mash, plus some comprehension and other activities. You should be able to access new tasks through the alert bell at the top of the page. Alternatively, tasks are listed in the 2Do list - scroll down to the bottom of the blue activities.


Any problems, please let me know.

Thanks for supporting your child with their homework.

Friday 11th September


Children have been sent home with phonics homework, where they need to write this week's sounds. There is no need to return this to school at the moment. I have also set a chapter of 'Ned and the Three Bears' on Purple Mash. There are some comprehension questions to answer and some other activities related to the story.

We have enjoyed practising our skipping this week!

Your child should have brought home two reading books this week. Please return them next Thursday, thanks. Other homework will be set from next week. However, we would be grateful if you could help with the following:


Science - we are learning about being human and are going to compare ourselves now to when we were babies. If you could email me a photo of your child as a baby (to stick in their books), that would be great.


History - we are learning about recent history. We are going to see how our lives today are similar/different to those of our parents and grandparents. Could you or an older family member please talk to your child about their childhood? Think about hobbies, TV, computer games, school lessons, holidays, food etc. 


PE - to confirm, PE kit is not required at the moment. Please just bring in trainers to leave in school.


Have a lovely weekend.

Welcome to Year 1!


We have had a lovely first day. It's been wonderful getting to know all the children, who have done brilliantly with all the new routines.


Please see below for the Year 1 documents and PowerPoints that we would have gone through at the transition meeting. There is also a PowerPoint about phonics. If you would like to hear how the different sounds are spoken, please watch this video.


If you have any questions about anything at all, please just ask.
