- About Us
As part of the food challenge we set, Sophie has made this amazing flower using beans on toast. I think you will all agree, it looks delicious!
Logan has sent some pictures in from when he visited the stream with his family. They found tadpoles that have started to grow legs. I wonder how long it will take until they are frogs?
This year our end of year reports will not be the same as usual due to lockdown. They will simply provide a generalised snapshot of where your child was in March . Reports will be sent to you over the next few weeks as the teachers write them one by one rather than having a day when we send out all the reports. They will be sent through Marvellous Me . We know the parents who do not have a Marvellous Me account. These parents will be contacted once the report is written and we can either send it in the post or leave it for collection.
We are very aware that you have become your child's teachers during lockdown and that your child will have changed a lot since March!
It would really help us if you could give us some idea of how your child has developed during this period. Therefore with your report will be a form that you could complete for us to help us for next year. It is not compulsory but it would be wonderful if you could complete and send back to school using the year group email by the middle of July. The form can also be downloaded by clicking the link below.

Jack has been busy yet again spotting bugs in his own garden and recording them on a chart. Jack has then written some very informative fact files on ladybirds, bees, dragonflies and spiders. I especially loved his acrostic poem about the bugs in his garden. Great work Jack! It is so lovely to see you enjoying your learning from home.
Harry has been learning all about fossils and dinosaurs this week and has produced his very own fossil picture. Harry then went on to look at the different food dinosaurs ate and discovered that not all dinosaurs ate meat. Great fact finding Harry!
Joe has written a fantastic acrostic poem all about snails and a jam-packed fact file all about ladybirds. I am so impressed with the facts that you found out Joe about how ladybirds protect themselves from predators! Keep up the hard work!
Joe has also been working hard on doubling numbers to 20 using ladybird spots to help him.
Lilly has been learning all about minibeasts and has successfully labelled a diagram of an insect. She then created her very own bug hotel and even learnt new D&T skills such as sawing wood and hammering nails. Great effort Lilly, it looks fabulous!

Fern has been incredibly busy learning from home. She has used her huge whiteboard just like we do in school. As you can see she has been practicing her high frequency words, the days of the week, telling the time and her times tables. She has also had her two little helpers with her on the right! Fern has then looked at her family tree. She has went all the way back to her great grandparents. Well done Fern!
Harrisson created a restaurant for his grandma and granda called, "Garden View". He set the table, wrote a menu of what he was serving that day, took down their orders and served them! He even made the delicious desserts himself! Harrisson managed to use his math skills to add the bill altogether and worked out how much money his grandma and granda needed to pay. He even gave himself a tip which I think he thoroughly deserved for the fabulous service. Once everyone had finished their meal, Harrisson took the left overs from lunch and fed them to some hungry goats whilst out on his daily walk. Well done Harrisson. It looks like you had a lovely day with your grandma and granda.
Finlay built this amazing spaceship as part of a lego challenge. This must have taken you ages Finlay. I love it - Well done!
Sophie has used last week's learning from home work we set to create this beautiful diagram of a butterfly! I'm particularly impressed as she has broke her writing arm and yet, she has still completed an amazing piece of work; that's dedication and perseverance! She has drawn, decorated and labelled a huge butterfly, showing it's different body parts which are; wings, antennae, head and abdomen. Very impressive Sophie! Well done.
The list of work Paddy has completed is endless! He has completed work sheets showing he can match animals to their habitats, label 2D shapes, label the different kinds of weather, label body parts of a human, spell the days of the week, match the senses to the body part they use, write a poem and use his ordinal numbers (first, second, third....) to follow instructions! On top of all of that work, he has also been giving a helping hand to build a new extension on his house AND showing his artistic side by painting and hiding rocks! Well done Paddy!
Millie has sent me a lot of work this week. She has really pushed herself to complete a wide range of activities and i'm very impressed.
Millie has been focusing on completing as many reading quizzes as possible and has really pushed herself to get as many gold stars as she can. She has also been on Little Bird Spelling and Spelling Frame. In maths Millie has completed number lines, solved tricky word problems which include 2-digit numbers, interpreted graphs, completed tally charts and so much more! She has been challenging herself musically this week by practicing keyboard with her lovely sister Bryony and she also made her very own little drum kit using recyclable materials! Millie has also built an amazing marble run which is very impressive! Well done Millie!
Teddy has been working on a time capsule! I think this will be amazing to look back upon in a few years time to see how things have changed and what has stayed the same! He has also been knuckling down with his phonics, making sure he completes one lesson a day, just like we would do in school! He has been reading one book a day and played maths games online! Well done for working so hard Teddy!
Logan has been busy exploring the woods and he found some fungus growing on a tree! He celebrated VE day with his family in the garden, competing in lots of games and races.
Mia has been super busy this week designing and building her very own bug hotel with the help of her Dad. She used used wood, plastic, brick, cardbaord tubes and nails to build the frame. Next, she went on a hunt around her garden to add the leaves, sticks, acorns and sand to make her hotel nice and cosy. We can't wait to see what residents appear in your hotel Mia! Well done!
Imogen visited Stanhope Ford where she saw some ducks. She decided to create a picture of the ducks using the natural resources she could find around her. It's so creative! She then wrote some sentences to go with her picture using capital letters, adjectives and full stops.
Joshua has been busy using his bricks and trains to help him make equal groups of 3. He has also been working through his Year 1 SPAG book! Great job Joshua!
Jack has been out exploring his environment this week discovering bugs and insects and learning about how to look after our planet. For Environment Day on 5th June, Jack has decided to plant a tree! Jack's favourite bug is the Blue Damselfly but he has been inventing his own minibeast called the Rainbow Bug!

Lilly has had a tremendous few weeks carrying out her home learning and has been working hard to keep up with her maths, reading and spelling daily. Well done Lilly, I am so proud! She has also used her locational knowledge to identify the different countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and delivered a special weather report with the help of her little aide, Oscar.
Lilly has also written a beautiful letter to her teacher using capital letters, full stops, and finger spaces in all the correct places. She described all that she had been getting up to and has been practicing her letter formation, using both her ascenders and descenders in the correct way. Keep up the hard work Lilly!
Imogen has been a busy bee at home this week learning all about measure and money. She has been busy baking and cooking, carefully measuring out the ingredients, and producing some yummy meals for her and her family.
Not only has Imogen mastered telling the time for o'clock and half past the hour but she has also learnt about the value of money and what each coin is worth. She challenged herself to investigate the different combinations of making a total and has enjoyed playing shops and independently working out the total she needs and what change will be given. What a star Imogen!
Harry has been getting creative and made a fabulous but fierce-looking lion as part of his home learning last week. I hope you didn't scare the neighbours Harry!
Well done to Joe who not only has been working hard to complete his White Rose maths every day, but he has also been learning his spellings and keeping track of his progress on Spelling Frame. Congratulations Joe, you are making me proud!
