Welcome to 1/2B's  web page.

Individual children isolating: March 2021 onwards:

In the event of your child isolating as a result of a family contact please see the Isolation work at the bottom of this webpage. A pack can also be collected from the office if you request one via a Dojo message. Thanks


If the whole class are isolating together this work will be displayed on the Year 1 and 2 Homelearning page as usual.

Welcome back:

It's lovely to see everyone back for our final term.

Click here to see what we are learning this term.

We have a got our science topic off to a great start with an object treasure hunt outside. We have learnt that objects are made from lots of different materials.

We have made the most of the good weather, having fun with our friends.

April 2021

We are all enjoying our time back in school together, and are making the most of our 'Growth and Greenfingers' topic. The sun has even been out to join us too :)

We picked 'nature treasure' and then created beautiful symmetrical artwork.

We have created beautiful artwork in the style of artist Van Gogh this week.

We have investigated fruit this week, and really enjoyed creating and eating a delicious healthy fruit salad. We have learnt why eating fruit is so good for us.

Welcome back everyone. Spring has sprung and we are starting our Summer term. Fingers crossed we will avoid any disruption this term, and we will be working hard to support the children in achieving the key skills needed this year. We would value your support in this by hearing your child read each evening.

11th March 2021

We are very excited to welcome all the children back to school at last. We are looking forward to seeing you work hard, have fun and enjoy spending time with your friends again. Lets see how much we can achieve by the end of the year :)


My name is Mrs Barford and I am the lucky teacher of this class. Mrs Huyton is our full time Teaching Assistant and Miss Allen is with us on Tuesday and Wednesday. We also enjoy sessions with Miss Fort on Tuesday morning.

If you would like to join in our Class Dojo see the letter sent in your child's book bag for your pass code.

Our class email is:

Our email is a great way to share what your children have done at home with the class. Please send photos or messages when you wish, we would love to see them. Also if your child is at home isolating, this email is a great way to contact staff to check which maths and english we are currently working on, so you can then complete the same lessons at home. Just send a brief message and we will try to help you as much as possible.




Click on the link below to see a video of our Show from the Stable. You could also have a look at the other Infant classes shows on their class pages too.

Last week we enjoyed a pantomime and also our Christmas Dinner. We looked great in our special festive jumpers.

We have explored how to make moving pictures in our DT work this term. Eventually we will design and make a pop-up Christmas card.

Click on this link to see what we are learning this half term:

Odd Sock day has helped us to think about how special and unique we all are. We talked about how to be kind to other people who are different to us.

We have learnt so many interesting facts about the Great Fire of London this term. Ask us what we have found out and we will amaze you with our knowledge !

We loved wearing pyjamas on Children in Need day.

We love searching for nature treasure outside.

We joined in the minute's silence on 11th November, and thought about the people in the past who have kept us safe.

The first children in class to read 50 books this year. Fantastic work !

We now have lots of children gaining reading certificates each week. Thank you for working so hard at school and at home too.

We have mixed shades like artists do this week. We thought of names for the new colours we made.

We had fun on European Languages Day in September. We learnt how to say the colours in French, and made lovely collages of the Eiffel Tower. Well done Ocean, you won our competition for the best artwork.

We had the best infant attendance this week so Harley bear has come to stay in our classroom...fantastic!

Well done to our first children in class to read 10 books at home. Keep up the amazing work everyone. We are aiming to get to 100 books by the end of the school year.

We explored outside for signs of Autumn. We found lots of amazing nature treasure. We took it inside and really enjoyed turning the flowers and leaves into amazing artwork. We made sure we washed our hands well, and put the tiny mini-beasts that had been hiding in the leaves back outside

We are enjoying the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We tried to act the story out.

We are back, and we have been brushing up on our number skills!

We have been getting to know our new classmates....

Making friends...

Useful class information....

Our class P.E day is Wednesday. Children can keep their kit at school. It would help if ear-rings are left at home on this day.

Reading books will be brought home each day. Please hear your child read as often as you can, as those who read at home make much faster progress across the curriculum.

Spelling homework will be sent home on Fridays. Your child will have a little test on them the following Friday.

Water bottles can be brought to school each day. Please make sure they are labelled with names.

Could you please ensure all items of clothing are named. Children can get very upset if they cannot identify their own things.


Keep checking this web page,it will be updated regularly with news of what we have been up to in class.laugh





If your child is worried about something, or you have a concern about your child, or need more information about something, please do come and speak to us. We will do what we can to help. The best time to catch us is as you drop off your child in the morning. After school is fine too, but please wait till the other children have been collected safely. You can also ring school and leave a message and we will call you back.smiley


Information to help your child if they are isolating at home.

There may be times when individual children, or even whole class bubbles, may have to isolate at home because of Covid 19. Any of the activities you are able to complete at home will be beneficial to your child, so please don't worry if you're doing it perfectly. Just reading a story each day would be amazing ( especially if your child is feeling unwell). Below are blocks of work for you to use at home if your child is absent from school. 


At the bottom of the page you will also find a variety of resources which we regularly use in school to help you with home schooling.  Purple Mash is an excellent resource and covers many aspects of the curriculum. Apps like Doodle maths and Numbots are very useful when you wish your child to work independently, and the Oxford Owls and Phonics Play websites are great for reading.

The work and plan here are to help to organise your child's home learning while they cannot attend school as your family are isolating. There is work below for two weeks.

Click to open plan for the week:

English - WEEK 1 - The Gingerbread Man

Afternoon Topic and Handwriting Sheets - week 1

English WEEK 2 - Little Red Riding Hood

Check out Twinkl Go! here: for animations, games and more. Your voice is an important tool - It's easy to overuse it when y...

These are worksheets to support ENGLISH and MATHS for Week 2


Afternoon Topic and Handwriting Sheets - Week 2

Below are some websites which may also be useful. This can add to and enhance your child's learning during self isolation but also in general throughout the year.



In school we often use the resources from a scheme called White Rose Maths. Follow the link below to their website, and this will give you access to our home learning videos. Your child can watch these (they will need to do this with support from an adult ), and then the pdf's below are worksheets that your child can then complete. Email to check which lesson we are currently learning.blush

Useful websites for home learning:

This is great for access to lots of reading books that we use in school, plus lots more activities too.

Purple Mash is great. Your child can have fun creating their own games, writing stories, creating artwork etc really independently. It has videos to help you to learn what to do.

Numbots will develop your child's maths skills well.

BBC Bitesize has a range of videos to keep your child learning across the curriculum.

The Doodle website is fantastic, and gives access to maths and english activities.

GoNoodle is great for getting active indoors.
