Lockdown Learning Y1 March-July

Hey everyone!

For home learning, we have the permission to use Robin Hood which comes with a weekly overview and it would be great if you could choose a few activities to do. Below is also a menu of activities on that you might want to join in with over the coming weeks. Just little ideas to keep the little people busy 😊


Some others bits that might help:

Sumdog is a fab app to help with maths and the class love it. You should have received the log in. On the Robin Hood scheme it refers to Numbots but we are using this instead. 
Phonics play is also one that we access often, along with phonicsbloom.

If you pop oxford owl in google, you are also able to read a range of ebooks for free ☺️ 
Kodu and Scratch Jnr are both apps that the children are able to navigate and practise their coding skills on. You have also been sent a log in for iCompute which will also support the teaching and learning of ICT.


If you would like to share anything that you have done at home then please feel free to send a picture or the document to


Good morning everyone β˜€οΈ 
Just a little message to say that I hope that everyone is ok and staying safe. I am going to miss my little class lots but needs must, and we must stay safe.

I hope that you’re enjoying some time at home and if you would like a challenge today it would be fab if you could join in with the ‘Rainbow Challenge’. Please make a rainbow Picture and pop it in your window so others can see when they’re walking past 🌈 Send a picture via email or pop it on Facebook. πŸ˜€ 



It is another beautiful day! 
I hope you all had lots of fun with your parents and guardians and showed them all just why I am always so proud of you!

Today, why not make some food with your adults and let us know what you made and how you did it? Could you write a recipe and send us the instructions! Don’t forget, you’re allowed to be bossy in this writing! Have fun πŸ’ž



Good morning, I hope that you’ve all slept well and are ready for another day of fun with your adults. Did anybody manage to do their instructions? I’d love to see them! 

Today’s challenge is for you to practise that lovely handwriting of yours. Write your alphabet in as many ways as you can. Can you use pens, pencils, sand, paint? Try and remember our new letter join letters. Have a fab day ☺️



Missing you all lots. 

In Science, we started looking at plants so it would be great if you and your adults could look whilst you're out getting some fresh air for different types of plants. Think of a way of showing me what you saw! eg, write a list, make a booklet, draw a picture, make a video! Be Creative! Stay safe everyone xx



Morning all! Hope you're all feeling well.

This half term we have been looking at forgiveness. Show me what forgiveness means to you! <3 Have a lovely weekend and see you all soon xx

This week's theme is the rainforest! How exciting!!


To start our week, I would like you to be really creative and make a new animal with different features. Does it have ears like an elephant so it can hear well but a long neck like a giraffe to reach the high branches? You could send us a picture and maybe a few sentences if you like :)

Hey my little ducklings!

How are you all? I can not believe that we are ALREADY a week into July. Today is all about being thankful for the world around us. Why not send us some thank you prayers for what you are thankful for.

You could use the template underneath:

Dear God,

Thank you for....

Thank you for...


I would love to receive them and we can print them and pop them in our worship area in class.




Taylor and Harry I love your prayers thank you xx

I can see some of you have been working really hard on their TTRS accounts! Well done. Why not spend some time on there today and try to improve the speed that you answer. 



Today we had a great time and spent some time on Oxford Owl. Evie's favourite book was A Vet's Weeks. What is your favourite book on there and why? The log in details are back active as 2019 and 2019. Happy Reading heart

Getting creative is the aim of today. Show me somewhere in the world that you have been in the most creative way you can! Lego, paint, natural materials?. Have a fab day. Xx


I can’t believe it’s our last Monday crying What an amazing class you are! I know it will be strange for you to come back but I thought it might be nice for you to tell your new teacher Mrs Waller all about you. Why not draw a picture and write a few sentences to tell her all about you and what you like. I can’t wait to send them to her! X



How are you all feeling? For today’s challenge, I would love you to have a go at some PE. Why not show your adults something that we have done on our lessons.
