Hello everyone. Myself and Mrs Huyton are missing you all, and hoping you are all enjoying spending time at home. As well as having fun, try to do a little learning each day to keep up the super skills you have developed so far this year. The websites below have lots to keep you busy. I have been on GONOODLE every day to wake my body up, and have worn myself out doing the Joe Wickes daily workouts! Perhaps you could try these activities too. If you would like to send me an email of a picture you have created, or a story you've written, I'd love to see how busy you've been.
I can see on my computer that some of you have been busy keeping up with your maths on Numbots and Doodlemaths. Well done to Isabel and Chloe who have the top scores this week.
The website I would love you to use is Oxford Owls, as this gives you free access to lots of home reading books. Although we like to sit next to each other and enjoy a story together, perhaps you could read to your dog or your favourite toy instead.
If you would like to print worksheets Twinkl is a super website with every subject you can think of, I have added a selection of their Easter worksheets below. It is free to use at the moment.
Above all stay happy, be kind to your family, and try to help out where you can at home. Perhaps you could help your grown ups to make tea, or read a bedtime story to your brother or sister. If you do baking send me a photo of the delicious things you have made to make my mouth water!
This picture made me smile. There are lots more below to look at to make you smile too :)
Our new class email is
Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have, ask for more work or
simply send me any photos of what you have been up to or the work you have done!
Children have been given their login details for the above websites inside their purple exercise books.
The websites below are all super websites - many of which are offering FREE subscriptions for the month
We use this regularly in school and all the children are really familiar with the games. Try any games (Phase 3, 4 or 5). You may need to create an account but lots of games are free.
You may need to create an account but this site has lots of READING BOOKS similar to those we have in school. Reading is THE MAIN area of learning we recommend for our children - it is so important! Try and read a book as regularly as possible!
Another amazing site with a HUGE amount of activities, stories, games, worksheets for all subjects - English, Maths, Science, Geography, History... everything!
This is a new website which we haven't used before but is offering free log ins for children. Their log ins are in the purple exercise books.
Log ins are the children's first names and password 'pig'.

My name is Mrs Barford and I am the lucky teacher of the Year 1 and 2 children in Class 1/2B. Mrs Huyton is our full time teaching assistant, so if you have any questions or worries please do come and speak to us. Miss Fort also teaches in our class on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday afternoons.
Please check our web page regularly to see what exciting things we have been up to.
Useful class information:
P.E is on Wednesday so could earrings be removed on this day please.
Reading books will be sent home each day. Your child will be able to choose a new one themselves when they need one.
A spelling homework sheet will be sent home each Friday, with a spelling test of the words in school the following Friday.
Doodle maths and Numbots are both available online so your child can boost their understanding of number. Your child will be reminded how to log on at home.
