Monday 27th April 2020

Good morning Otters.

It was great speaking to so many of you last week and hearing all about how you are getting on. Mrs McCallum, Mrs Kemp and I look forward to doing this again soon. Keep posting all those photos in our Celebration Gallery they are amazing – we all enjoy seeing all the wonderful things that you are doing.

I hope that you all had a really good weekend and are ready for some exciting learning this week. Each Monday I send out my weekly email – if you haven’t received these please check your junk email box!!


Reading and Phonics Year 1 and EYFS Remember that Oxford Owl provides a selection of on-line reading books which are the same type of books your children are reading in school.

As from today daily phonics lessons from Letters and Sounds are available to follow from here. I have watched today’s and can recommend them.


Year 1  

Maths  This week you will be learning about ordering numbers, working in 10s and 1s and comparing objects to 50.

English  This week your English will be linked to your science learning. You will be writing an alliterative poem, writing about the life cycle of a butterfly and creating a mini-beast fact file.

Year1 Week 2 Home Learning Pack

Science  This term we are learning about mini-beasts. We shall start by watching a PowerPoint about the life cycle of a butterfly. This will also help Year 1 with your English this week.

SCIENCE Week 2 The Lifecycle of a butterfly

RE  This term we shall be continuing to learn about other cultures and religions beginning with Buddhism. Watch the PowerPoint and try to answer the questions as it goes along, just like we do in class.

For those of you who are enjoying the daily lessons from the Oak National Academy this week Maths is covering mass, Science is covering Weather and Season. All very useful.

English Here we will practise using some of our Phase 3 graphemes 

EYFS Week 2 Home Learning Pack

Science (The World) Like Year 1 we too are learning about mini-beasts. Can you watch the same PowerPoint as they are please?

I hope you have a good week of learning and remember that I am looking forward to seeing what you have done.
