I can't believe we are in the last week of term. The weeks seem to of flown by! We enjoyed learning about rockets and astronauts so much last week that we have decided to continue the space theme this week too. This week we are going to learn about the planets in the solar system and lots of other space activities. You can join in too by listening to Mrs Craven reading 'Roaring Rockets' and try some of the activities on the attached planning.
I would like to thank you all for sending in your fantastic photos and messages over the last few weeks. I would like to wish you all a lovely summer holiday and I am looking forward to seeing you all in September. Keep reading and practice your RWI sounds as much as you can over the holidays.
Home Learning 6.7.20
This week's topic is transport. We are going to start the week reading 'Whatever Next' by Jill Murphy and make a rocket so why don't you make one too! Listen to Mrs Towse read the story and watch out for Mrs Craven giving Mrs Towse a round of applause at the end! We will also be reading the stories 'The Naughty Bus' and The Train Ride and making a bus and a train from junk modelling. As we are nearing the end of term we are going to revisit RWI sounds to consolidate learning. See the planning for activity ideas. Our maths focus this week is 'taking away' use objects in your house to practice this e.g. sultanas, cereal, beads or cars. Have a go at creating maths stories such as. 'First' there were 5 cars, 'Then' 2 cars went in the tunnel and 'Now' there are 3 cars left.
We have had a busy week!
We planted sunflowers and lettuce plants and had a lovely time on sports day.
Online Sports Day 2020
We hope everyone who took part enjoyed the online sports day this year. We have been getting loads of pictures and even some videos through of the different events everyone took part in! We have put some of these pictures onto the gallery page of the school website, but due to the number we got through we've had to limit the photos to one per family. We hope you enjoy looking at how everyone else got on! The link to the gallery can be found below:
Home Learning 29.6.20
This week we are looking at plants. We will be finding out what a plant needs to grow and the life cycle of a bean. We will be starting our week by reading Jack and the Beanstalk, making a collage picture of the bean plant and labeling it. We are also going to read the stories The Enormous Turnip and Supertato. These books can be found on YouTube if you don,t have them at home. See the attached planning for this week's RWI sounds but don't forget to keep practicing the sounds you have already learnt! For maths this week we will be continuing to practice addition and subtraction calculations using concrete objects to support our learning.
Have a great week.
Home Learning 22.6.20
This week we are continuing with our mini-beast theme. We will be reading the story What The Ladybird Heard and our activities will be based on the story and learning about ladybirds. See the planning attached to give you some ideas on what you can do at home. This week's RWI sounds are ou, oy, ea, oi. and in Maths we are continuing to focus on number bonds to 10 and adding two groups to find the total. There are also other ideas attached linked to the story that you might like to have a go at.
Have a great week!

Hope you have had a lovely weekend. This week our story is The Hungry Caterpillar and the activities on the planning are based on it. The RWI sounds we are covering in class this week are ar, or, air, ir. We focus on a sound each day and look at words that contain the sound followed by a sentence with one of the words in. There are also two powerpoints attached that you may find useful. One is the set 2 sounds and the other is words with the set 2 sounds in.
Have a good week!
Hope your first week back to home learning went well and you enjoyed the story. This week we are doing lots of activities on the story We're Going On A Bear Hunt read by Mrs Bainbridge. In phonics this week we are going to focus on the RWI Special friends igh, ow, oo just to refresh out memories before moving on to new sounds. We are also looking at position and repeating patterns in maths so join in with us and try some of the activities attached below. In class this week we are going to start our day with a bit of zumba so click on the link below to do it as well. Have a good week and please keep in touch. Have a great week and don'f forget to try and spot the difference for Mrs Clark!
Home Learning 1.6.20
Hope you have all had a great week. Some children are returning back to school this week so I have linked the home learning planning and activities to the ones that we will be doing at school. I have suggested a daily RWI sound to practice on the planning as we will be doing phonics every morning. Then choose a book to read and write a sentence, just as you would do in RWI at school. We will also be doing number work everyday too. Our focus this week is counting and place value to 20. Practice counting forwards and backwards to 20 from any number. also practice 1 more/less from any number. The activities that we are doing in maths are also on the planning attached for you to do at home, please send photos in so I can show them to the children in class.
In school this week we are focusing on the story ' I Don't Want To Wash My Hands' by Tony Ross and our afternoon activities will be based on this story. Listen to Mrs Craven read the story and have a go at some of the activities we will be doing.
Hope you have had a lovely week and thank you once again for your emails and photographs. I have added all the photos to the class page, just scroll down to see them.
We have all been very busy in school getting our classrooms ready for the children that are returning to school in June. We thought you would like to see what your classroom and learning environment looks like now so we have taken some photos of both Class 1 and Class 2 for you to see.
Week beginning 18.5.20 answers to the 'Spot The Difference'and 'Guess The Plant'
Mrs Towse's plants were: 1st plant is a cucamelon and 2nd plant is a courgette.
Mrs Clark's chocolate differences were: The Aero and Dairy Milk disappears and an empty wrappers arrives at the bottom of the picture. I think Mrs Clark must of eaten them!
Did you get them right? Well done.

Hello Class 1,
Well done everyone for keeping busy! I am amazed at all the wonderful creative ideas you have been doing and enjoy seeing and hearing about them every week. This week we are focusing on the story 'Giraffes Can't Dance' by Giles Andreae and all the activities are based on this story. We also have something new for you this week! Mrs Clark is challenging you with 'Spot the difference' from her house & garden and Mrs Towse has set you the tricky task of identifying some of the plants she is growing in her garden! Have a go and I will give you the answers on Friday, so don't forget to look to see if you got them right!
I hope you are still trying to read for a few minutes every day. Why not try to fill the 'Reading Challenge Reward Chart' this week to see if you can fill it. You can do it!

Hello Class 1,
Hope you have had a lovely weekend. This week we are going to look at a different story. The story is called The Emperor's New Clothes and you can listen to Mrs Bainbridge read it on the video below. When you have listened to the story why not try some of the story activities. Activity plans and attached documents are all under the video for you to access.
Please tell us if you have done any of the activities and send pictures of your lovely work as we really enjoy seeing them.
Have a great week and email email@example.com if we can help in any way or if you would like to collect a new home learning pack from school.
Home Learning – Week beginning 27.4.20
Hope you have had a lovely weekend. This week we are going to focus our learning on the story ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. This is one of my favourite stories so I hope you enjoy it too! Listen to the first and then have a go at one of the many activities linked to the story (see attached planning for each year group below). Please send photos of your learning or even a short video of you telling the story.
There is also a sticker chart you could print off and put a sticker on every time you do one of the activities. I wonder if you can fill it this week!
I have also attached some useful phonics information of online resources and a daily phonic session that you can watch. The daily lessons start from Monday 27th April and are introduced by a celebrity. There are three different daily lessons to choose from. Reception is at 10am and an extra blending lesson on CVC words at 11am if you would like to give it a go too. Year 1 also has a blending phonics session at 10.30. See the attached letter for more information and how to find the link.
The phonics lessons are based on ‘Letters and Sounds’ but the pronunciation of each sound is the same to blend words. However, there is also a good selection of Read Write Inc. videos available on Youtube that you can use to practise saying the sounds and rhymes.
Read Write Inc (RWI) videos
Practice saying the RWI Set 1 pure sounds.
Read Write Inc – Practice saying the RWI Set 2 sounds
Read Write Inc – Practice saying and writing Set 3 sounds. You do not need to buy RWI flashcards as you can write the sounds on pieces of card and say the rhyme.
Alphablocks is also another lovely phonics resource that will support the children with blending sounds.
The government have commissioned and launched these two resources to help parents with school-age children at home. there is no obligation to use them, but they offer variety and the BBC programme give children a different presenter which will give parents time off from being the teacher.

Welcome to Class 1!
Welcome to Class 1
Class 1 is for children in Reception and Year 1. There are two teaching assistants, Mrs Clark and Mrs bainbridge, as well as the class teacher, Mrs Craven. It is a lovely classroom with a big outdoor area where the children can access all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) where we promote enquiry-based learning, independence and the development of a child's skills through free-flow time alongside daily small group focussed teaching. As this is a mixed year group class, the learning environment also supports the National Curriculum for Year 1 children with structured activities as well the opportunity to extend their learning in the outdoor environment. All children in Class 1 learn phonics and early writing skills through the Read, Write Inc programme of small group teaching (details below). Please see the documents below for an idea of our daily timetable and what is taught in each year group. There are also some lovely photographs of previous learning activities.
Class 1 Wedding - March 2020
Class 1 had their very own wedding as part of our RE lessons today. It took place in the church of St Wilfrid with Revd Simpson running the service. We had a wonderful time learning about how a christian wedding ceremony is carried out.
