Activities for over the Easter break
I have added a document of Easter Activities which you can print off and complete and play the games, do the colourings etc.
There is also a good website with Easter links to RE and craft activities.
I have also attached a document from the Lancashire English team which has activities based on a story with lots of links to online documents. There will be one of these released each week after the break, so keep checking back on this page weekly!
Note: I have had a few messages from parents saying their children have done lots of the activities from the purple exercise books and can they have more, so if you want anything else or anything specific, please email me on the address below and I would be more than happy to help
Have a lovely Easter - stay at home and stay safe (and eat some chocolate!)
Missing you all! Miss Pearson (p.s. Barney the dog says Woof!)
We Can Go Exploring!
As Class 1P, Class 1/2 B and Class 2V have been sadly unable to take our farm trip, here are many super links to take you on Virtual Trips around the world!
The Macaroni Kid website includes a great link to different types of farms too:
There are 11 different farms to explore, from a Dairy Farm to an Apple Orchard.
You could write about what you find out and draw pictures in your book:)
Week Commencing 30th March
I have added some phonics activities and games below. They range from Phase 2 to Phase 5 so everybody should be able to have a go! You just need to print them off! If you can't get them printed, remember there are activities on phonicsplay.co.uk and twinkl.co.uk.

The Farm Shop
Our new topic for this half term is 'The Farm Shop'. It is a super topic where we will learn all about how plants, fruits and vegetables grow (we may even plant some of our own!) and we get to taste, design and make our own vegetable salad!
It is also World Book Day where we can wear our PJ's to school and make story spoons and story boxes over the holidays.
I will put some photos of the story spoons and World Book Day below...
'Best of British' History Day
The children took part in our 'Best of British' day last week as part of our special History topic. Each class in school were given a topic relating to Britain - the royal family, music, sports, landmarks were just a few. We were given 'London' as our topic which was exciting as the children had heard of London but didn't know a lot about it!
We watched a clip of a mouse who visited the different London landmarks and afterwards we made a London bus shaped booklet about them with key facts stuck in. We have learnt about Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Tower Bridge. We also made some Union Jack flags and drew the famous landmarks- the drawings were AMAZING!!
Our new topic this half term is Explorers! Please see the bottom of the page for our curriculum cloud which details everything we will be learning over the next 6 weeks!
We will be learning all about what an explorer is, famous explorers such as Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus and making our own information booklets about them too!
We have had such a busy few weeks on the run up to Christmas! From our amazing nativity to party day, we have had a lovely time!
I hope you all have a super Christmas and enjoy your break!
See you on Tuesday 7th January!
From Miss Pearson, Mrs Davidson, Miss McKenna and Miss Weall
Children in Need
We had a super day in our PJ's on Friday for Children in Need! We did the special wake up shake up with Joe Wickes live online! We were very hot but it was a good way to wake ourselves up at 9am!
Thank You very much for your kind donations - they will go to a super cause!
Odd Sock Day for Friendship Week
We made Poppy finger paintings and wrote a poem to help us to remember the soldiers who have fought and died in all world wars. We talked about the poppy symbol and why we wear poppies and discovered that the reason it is a poppy is because they grew in the battlefields once the war had ended.
We held a minute silence at 11am and thought about the soldiers we had talked about.
Well done 1P, your pictures were lovely!
Today we had a fabulous day to celebrate our Book Week, with a dress up day with the theme of 'Monsters, Magic and Mystery.'
The costumes were amazing - well done for making such an effort!
It was a very tough decision but two winners were chosen - Lexy and Caleb!
Have a look at the super photos below...
Please don't forget to send in photos of your child reading - wherever that may be! We have so far had photos of children reading to big brothers, baby sisters and even the dog! They are lovely to see and will be shown in Infant Assembly on Tuesdays!
We have also had our first 3 readers of 10 books at home! Evelyn, Zack and Luna have all received their first certificate and special sticker! Well done and keep up the hard work! Lots more children are well on their way too - amazing!
WE HAVE SINCE HAD LOTS OF AT HOME READERS - MORE 10 STICKERS HAVE BEEN GIVEN OUT, AS WELL AS SOME 20 STICKERS AND PRIZES TOO! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
French Day 2019!
We celebrated International Languages Day on Thursday! We have only just started learning little bits of French in Year 1 so we practiced saying 'Bonjour' when answering the register and we even did some French counting in our Maths lesson! We also made our own French flags, took part in the colouring competition and made match stick Eiffel Towers!
Miss Pearson did a KS1 assembly where we learnt all about France and Paris and we even sang a little song about numbers to 10!

Our first few weeks in Year 1!
We have had a busy 3 weeks so far! We have been playing in the classroom, working hard in our new subjects and making the most of the last bit of summer by enjoying our outdoor area!
We got to dress up as a character or wear yellow for Roald Dahl day last week which was fun!
We also made a mini version of ourselves for our entrance to the classroom! :)
HAVE A LOOK AT SOME PHOTOS BELOW...
Please remember that we are collecting tins and packets of food for the Harvest festival!
Welcome to 1P!
We are very lucky in 1P to have some fantastic members of staff to help us do all of the fun and exciting work we will do this year!
Mrs Davidson works in our class all day Monday - Thursday
Miss McKenna works in our class all day Monday - Friday
Miss Fort works in our class on Wednesday mornings
and you get me (Miss Pearson) all day, every day!
It is a big step to go from Reception to Year 1 - not only do you have different teachers but you will do lots of different lessons, such as ICT, Art, History, Music, RE, Geography and many more! However Year 1 is all about making learning interesting and find lots of fun ways to cover our topics.
Each half term we will learn a different topic which covers everything we need to learn in Year 1. Each topic has a name and we make a 'curriculum overview' (called a curriculum cloud) which is sent home to give parents an idea of their childs' learning. They are all at the very bottom of this page so please check each half term for the latest one.
* Reading Books - these are changed as often as you read them. Please try to read a book, or just part of a book, each night. Please write the page number and sign or tick to say it has been read and then we can change it. Books may not be changed on a Friday (as Mrs Davidson does these) but please send in anyway.
* PE - our PE lesson is on Monday afternoon. Please ensure children have a t-shirt, shorts and pumps and these all have their NAMES in! Please also ensure children have their earrings taken our before school as we cannot do this for them.
* Homework is given out in the form of a spelling sheet on a FRIDAY to be completed at the weekend/following week and returned on the FRIDAY after. Please do not send on Monday even if completed as on Friday's we have a little spelling test and so keeping the list means your child can practice up to the Thursday evening.
* We also use a superb programme called Doodle Maths which has great games and is proven to help progress in Maths. The children LOVE it! Usernames and Passwords will be given out in the next few weeks, once the children have had a practice in school.
Any questions, please ask me when the children are leaving in the afternoons, or on the door in the morning!
These tell you everything that we are learning each half term.
Each topic has a different name and different subjects are covered so that by the end of the year, everything in the curriculum has been taught.
Have a look at the different topic clouds below:
* Autumn 1 - Fighting Fit
* Autumn 2 - The Place Where I Live
* Spring 1 - Explorers
* Spring 2 - The Farm Shop
* Summer 1 - Wind in the Willows
* Summer 2 - Buckets and Spades
