Home Learning Week Commencing 6.7.20

Good morning everyone. I hope you had a great weekend and managed to survive the blustery weather. We are on the home stretch now as we enter the final two weeks of Year 1. How crazy does that sound? We will be continuing with our workbooks which seem to be a huge success, well done for all of the incredible work you shared with me last week. As always, please do keep me updated through ClassDojo with any activities you get up to this week, it really does cheer me up to see all of your faces! Have a super week!

Mr Lester

Home Learning Week Commencing 22.6.20

Hello and welcome back to another week of home learning. There are some changes coming this week. We have purchased some more work books and we will be delivering these to you as soon as possible. I hope this will make it easier to support at home. As with other year groups not in school, I shall direct you daily on which pages to complete. Please only complete the pages asked so as to have enough to last for the remaining weeks of the term.

If you are enjoying the lessons from the Oak National Academy and would still like to continue with these, please do! The input from a real teacher and adults at home will make a huge difference but I appreciate this is not possible for all. 


*Tuesday 23rd June Update*

A huge thank you to Mrs Jordan and Mrs Perry who racked up the steps yesterday to deliver new home learning packs and say hello. They really are super heroes! It's great to know that so many of you are still safe and well.  You are now set to follow the links below to find details on how to complete the suggested activities set in your pack. For the few of you that live a little further away, your packs shall arrive in the post soon! Please continue working from the Oak National Academy Schedule in the meantime.


I would like to keep the children who are in school updated with what you are up to at home as we really miss you all. Where possible, please continue to share your photos using ClassDojo.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Take care,

Mr. Lester.

Home Learning Week Commencing 15.6.20

I hope you have all had a fantastic weekend, the weather was quite dramatic wasn't it! This week we continue on with our Oak National Academy learning, please follow the link to this week's schedule in the usual way. I know some of you have been using Twinkl for some of the resources at home. The free access has now ended but there are still many resources created specifically for home learning that can still be accessed. If there is anything specific that you would like to use let me know and I can forward on to you.

If you have any questions regarding anything about your child, please do not hesitate to get in touch via ClassDojo, Facebook or calling the school office. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Have an amazing week!

Year 1 had an amazing morning learning about life in the past and what life was like in schools 2000 years ago.

We had a fantastic day and are so grateful for the Timezone team for another experience rich day.

Thank you to all of the parents/carers that could join us today!

Now it's time for some Chinese New Year maths. Reception have worked hard to make Dragons from 2D shapes and order the animals in the Chinese Zodiac race.

Happy Chinese New Year from Reception.

We had a lovely morning making lanterns, envelopes and masks and also had a super go at retelling the story of the Chinese Zodiac.

After that we had a Chinese themed snack time with noodles, spring rolls and prawn crackers to build up our strength for dragon boat racing later!
