It's time for "PYJAMARAMA" Day!


Today is a day for staying in pyjamas and reading books! You can find lots of fun reading activities by clicking the link below! One of those activities is to send a picture of yourself reading your favourite book in your pyjamas to your teacher! I wonder who could find the craziest place to read! 

Meanwhile, we as teachers love to spend time reading in our pyjamas!....

Phonics Learning

From Monday 27th April, online phonics lessons will be available on the Letters and Sounds YouTube channel: 
Please use this for your child's daily phonics lesson.


Written and presented by phonics experts and funded by the Department for Education, the online lessons are designed to cover new phonics teaching that the children would have received over the summer term had they been in school.
Three sets of lessons will be available. One set for Reception and one for Year 1, based on where children are expected to be in their learning in the summer term. A third set of lessons aims to focus on areas children find the most challenging. A guidance film for parents to explain the basics of Phonics and how parents can support their child is available on 

Week Beginning 20.04.20

White Rose Hub is a tool that we use to support our Maths teaching. They have now released a week's worth of activities that you will be able to access for free from home each day. 

Please shout if you have any questions or queries - use my email. 

Thank you and have fun!


BBC Bitesize have launched daily lessons for your year group from today. Click on the relevant year group for your child and home-school lessons will be provided. Please remember to email your child's class teacher if you need any more guidance or information! We love to hear from you!

Happy Birthday to Captain Tom Moore!

I am sure you have all seen the news of war veteran, Captain Tom Moore,  completing 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday in order to raise money for the NHS! It is amazing to hear today that he has raised more than 12 million pounds for NHS Charities Together. 


I have noticed that some children have written birthday cards to Captain Tom Moore  as a way of saying thank you!

If you wish to do this, please use the following address in order to ensure they are received:


Captain Tom Moore

C/O Post Office Ltd

67 Bedford Road

Marston Moretaine

MK45 0LA




A challenge for you... I wonder if you could complete some laps of your back garden/yard! How long does it take you to complete 100 of them I wonder?


Happy Easter!

This is a story that I have really enjoyed reading! I hope you enjoy it too! 

I wonder if any of you can use items in your own home to make your very own robot! 

I look forward to seeing them! Stay safe!

Here are some activities for you and your child/children to work through about how to stay safe when you are using the internet.

"I want my hat back" by Jon Klassen - 13.04.20

A YouTube channel which allows stories to come to life through puppetry have streamed a free version of a core text for the children.

I wonder whether any of the children can create their own puppet theatre to retell their favourite story; you could use an old box and create your own puppets using drawings you have made yourselves! 

Remember to send them via email to your child's class teacher. 

Design us a playground! 

An extra idea to support your home learning.  We have found this amazing competition - win a £10,000 playground for your school.  How super would it be if some of you could enter and our school won! Follow this link and see if you could design us a winning playground:- 

Unfortunately, school is now closed for the foreseeable future. Below are some websites you may wish to use during the school closure. 

Twinkl has kindly allowed parents free access to their website. This will provide the children with access to activities and learning packs, linked to their year group curriculum.

To access these resources, please log on to and use code UKTWINKLHELPS.


We have put together a list of websites for you to use during the school closure. Below, we have listed some websites that will be helpful with learning. 


Year 1 Useful Websites

Phonics - You can choose which phase to work on. For Year 1, Miss Redpath recommends phase 5. (Username: login Password: homelearning) (Username: march20 Password: home) - Perfect resource for playing games which enhance phonic knowledge and High Frequency Words. Children can access ALL PHONICS PHASES.
