School entrance


A BIG Hello from Mrs Standing and Happy Brithday to those of you that have had birthdays or have one coming up soon! Missing you lots and lots and hopefully see you all soon!

Home Learning - Week Commencing 29th June 2020 (Term 6 - Week 5/6)

As we enter Term 6 our learning may look a little bit different...

As some children are heading back to school either this week or next they will be taught by Mrs Moore, who will be covering the same learning with the 2 groups.

Under here you will see the subjects and a short overview with different ways that you could explore your learning at home, but there will be no set activity to complete.

If your child is not returning to school, and you would like some resources to work through, please email or message on Class DoJo where I can send resources over that the children will be using in school.

I hope you are all staying safe and well and enjoying the beautiful weather we are having.

If you have any questions please ask, 

Miss O'C

 English - Traditional Tale Writing

This term we follow on from Fairy Tales and begin to think about Traditional Tales

Traditional Tales are stories which have been told for years and years... you know them, your parents will know them, your grandparents will know them and even their parents would have known them too

Task 1 - Getting to know the Traditional Tale - Get to know the story of Goldilocks. You could listen to this on YouTube or read the book if you have it at home. Think of some questions that you would like to ask Goldilocks or the Three Bears. What might their answers be?

Task 2 - Ordering the story - Just to check you know the story inside out... Click attached file underneath named "Story sequencing" - Put the pictures in the correct order and if you would like, write a short sentence to go with each.

Task 3 - Creating your own Traditional Tale - You are going to choose characters that you would change in the story. Draw a picture of your changed characters. 

Task 4 - Story plan - Using the structure of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the changed characters you created in task 3, your task is to plan your own Traditional Tale. Attached is a plan template named "Storyboard template."

Task 5 - Traditional Tale - Today is the day... Follow along with your plan and write your own traditional tale. Remember, it can be like Goldilocks in many ways, but with different characters. Or maybe she wont eat porridge, sit in their chairs or sleep in their beds. It is your choice!

 Transition from Reception to Year 1.

Our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning practically will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.


Percy Pipit.

Each Friday one child will be chosen to be our Star of the Week. This child will be responsible for helping with jobs in the classroom throughout the week. On Friday, this child will bring home our class bear and a diary for the weekend. They will be asked to take the teddy on their adventures over the weekend and record what they do in the diary. If your child is not yet able to do this it is perfectly acceptable for you to write in the diary what your child says. Please return this to school on Wednesday so your child can show and share their weekend news with the class.


Reading in Year 1.

Your child will be given a reading record to bring home, books are changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. They will need to keep their reading diary and books alongside their Sound books from Reception in their book bags to bring to school every day. The children will also have a group reading session once a week and will bring this book home to share again.


General Reminders…

The children will be doing PE on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. We encourage children to practice dressing at home to support changing quickly in school!

Any letters or reply slips, which need to be returned, can be put in your child’s book bag. The children are encouraged to check them each morning and give things in after the register.

The children will need their own water bottle to keep in class. Please make sure your child’s name is written clearly on their water bottle.

Year 1 have homework in their books every Friday (excluding the holidays)
