Thank you

Hope you and your family are keeping well.

It will be lovely for you to learn about seeds and plants and get planting!

We would love to see photos of you in your garden.

If you would like to email me, I would love to hear from you.

Take care and God Bless,

This week we would like you to listen to 'The Enormous Turnip'.

When you have listened to the story you could act it out for your family?

You can plant seeds you could choose to plant vegetables or flowers.

Could you ask mummy or daddy if you can help prepare some vegetables, you could make some soup.

Can you find out what other vegetables grow underground?

I thought you might like to design your own garden!

Can you take pictures of the garden and email them to me?

Put the spices into alphabetical order.

Design and make puppets - can you put on a show?

Can you make a musical instrument out of household items?

Find, pick and dissect a flower.

Can you count your stairs in 2's, 5's and 10's.

Write a poem using chalk outside.

In Year 1 this term our Learning Challenge is 'Has man landed on the moon?'

There is a science and history focus to this learning challenge.

The children will be looking at planets and the solar system. The children will also be learning about Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake.

The children have been extremely excited as we have an alien in our classroom!! A spaceship has crashed on the playground and the alien is now lost!! We will be linking this to our class text 'Beegu'.


Year One children learn to have a phonetic approach to their reading through daily phonic lessons.  Children learn sounds made by a letter or letters before blending the sounds together (from left to right) to read a word.  

Guided Reading sessions help develop fluent reading, aid comprehension skills and enable children to read for enjoyment.

Children may select a book to take home from our well resourced School Library.

Children are able to choose their own reading books to take home.

We have a cosy reading corner in the classroom.
