Hi Year 1.

 I hope that you are all well and learning in many different fun ways at home.

We are enjoying our ‘Ocean’ theme at school especially learning about how important it is to us and how we all need to look after it. We have also been watching some excerpts from ‘Deadly 360’ on CBBC linked to the ocean. It is truly amazing just how many animals live in our seas and oceans.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the work we are completing at school? Remember to check the ‘gallery’ each week. In last week’s tab there is a special picture linked to our #30DAYSWILD work, it has taken 4 weeks to complete. We are enjoying our #30DAYSWILD work so much we are going to continue past the month of June.

Have a great weekend.

Thinking of you all smiley

Hi Year 1.

I hope that you and your family are all well and that you getting back into the swing of trying to do a little bit of work each day again. 

I hope that you are enjoying our new theme on 'Oceans'! We are having fun with it in school. And we have learnt so much about the rocky shore from our Ocean School lesson. We have also drawn our own whales - I will share these with you next week once they have been completed.

We are also continuing to complete activities linked to #30DAYSWILD. Please see the 'gallery' for what we have created this week.

Make sure that you have a look at next week's activities as we have some more fun stuff planned that I think you will enjoy.

Have a great weekend and enjoy some fun learning next week.

Hope this message finds you all safe and well.

This week at school has gone well. To share some of what we have been doing I have uploaded a video, some pictures and a challenge (should you choose to accept) on the new Gallery page, this can be found by clicking on the 'Sunflower' tab above.

For the rest of this half term our theme will be 'Oceans'. Please visit the 'Theme' tab to join 'Digital Ocean School' each week.  

I have uploaded all the new work for next week. You will see I have slightly changed the format of some of this to support you with home learning (well I hope I've helped).

As always, if there is anything you need, please get in touch via the home learning email address.

Remember always try your best and stay happy.



Friday 29th May

Hope you are all having a fun half term with your families and enjoying the lovely sunny weather.

You can access the home learning for Summer Term 2 via the 'Sunflower' tab above. For those children attending school they will be covering the same work that I upload here.

For those of you working at home, please follow the routines that you have already established and what is working for you. Remember you can still access the Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize work. There is also free access to Phonics Play which has a range of games to support your child's learning.

The children will be having a PE lesson on a Wednesday morning - could you please send your child into school dressed in their PE kit? They do not need school uniform on this day.

Please remember we love seeing any work you complete at home, so send us your home learning through on I can then add these to our picture gallery.

I look forward to seeing some of you soon.


Stay safe,

Mrs Edmunds and Mrs Schwartz




School Closure


We are missing seeing all of the children and hope that you are all safe and well.


By clicking the link above you will have access to all of the work which has been set for Class 1. Some of this is online, the children all have logins for MyMaths and Education City (these were sent home on 5th March). Some of it can be downloaded and completed electronically or printed off if you prefer.


We would ask that you please continue to read every day with your child and record this in their reading diaries.


We will regularly check the work the children are doing online and will update and add resources ready for each Monday morning. 


We would love to hear all about the learning you are doing and maybe even see pictures of the children's work.  To contact us please use the following email address:


We hope to see you all back at school soon.
