Welcome to 'Home Learning'


 We are missing you in school and hope you are all safe, well and happy.

Although not nearly as wonderful as usual, it is lovey to see all your smiling faces during our Zoom meetings. Well done for working so hard and staying happy and positive. The work you are sending in is amazing! Keep up the great work everyone!!

 This week (25.01.21) will include the usual weekly plans, with activities and links to online lessons, found below, Our new text in English this week is 'The Magic Paintbrush' and we are looking at 3D shape and time (days/months/seasons) in maths.

We will have our daily zoom sessions. You should have received invitations to some of your sessions. This will include our Monday catch up. This Monday, I want us to think about 'What makes us happy?' So if children have a toy, pet, photograph etc that will help them share their ideas that would be perfect. We would also love to share any news and/or work you have done so please have anything you want to show us ready. 

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we are offering Phonics on our Zoom session. Your child will need a pencil and their English books (or paper) for this session. On Wednesday we are inviting you all to a whole class Maths session. This week the focus will be 3D shape. If children have blank paper, a pencil and their workbooks availble in case they are needed. An additional zoom session will take place on Friday, details to follow. Also whole school assembies take place on Monday and Friday.

I hope this sounds manageable and look forward to seeing you during the week.

Each child should have their own login details for both Purple Mash and Active Learn. Two new books have been allocated for each child this week on Active Learn. Both online learning platforms offer a great range of learning  activities that children have previously enjoyed in school.

Our History topic this term is 'Who is the Greatest Historian?'. Research will be done on historians such as Guy Fawkes, Grace O'Malley and Marie Curie. We will ask ourselves what mark would we like to leave on the world? What would we like people to remember about us? Plans and resources can all be found in the document section below.

Remember if you want to contact us, or send work/photographs in, please use the Class One email -

 Keep smiling! 

-Many thanks 

Mrs Blair, Miss Larsen and Mrs Pritchard
