Hello Everyone,

This week would have been our last week together before the summer break. I have really missed being with you all and hearing about what you have all been doing. It really has been a very odd and worrying year and it's sad that we haven't been together for such a long time. I have luckily seen a few of you in our "bubble" and I can't believe how much you have grown! It has been lovely to see you and I have really enjoyed being with our little crew of pirates! For the last week, I have put together a pack of fun activities. You can choose which you would like to do and when so there is no "timetable"! If you can't print the sheets you need, you can either do them on paper or ask your grown up if they can collect a pack for you from school. Don't forget to include a breaktime each morning and afternoon.

Take care and stay safe

Mrs Bellingham

Due to the current unprecedented situation, we sadly cannot continue with the planned curriculum. However, the children in Class 1B will all be receiving English and Maths "Home Learning" packs to enable them to practice and revise certain objectives. I have also made a "Topic Booklet" so that they can do further learning about "Castles", which covers some of the other curriculum areas that had been planned for this theme.  


Please do not try to complete all the packs as quickly as possible - there is a "timetable" further down (and in their packs) to help you to structure and create a routine for their day - select one maths and one English activity (one worksheet from their packs) each day plus follow the Activity list in their "Castles" booklet to do one of those each time you see "Topic" on the timetable! We have a 15 minute breaktime at 10.30 and an hour's lunchtime at 12.00 each day.


There is also time in the weekly timetable for phonics, PE, the Daily Mile and story time - see below for links and suggestions! The phonics website "PhonicsPlay" has made it's resources free to all during this period and it's login details are

Username; March20 password: home


I will be putting a link up each day for a story for you and your children to watch and listen to together and there will be a daily "Word of the Day" posted (you can find the sheet for this in their pack and there is a link to an online dictionary for you below).



​Story Time

Today's story is "Farmer Duck" by Martin Waddell

If you don't have a copy of the book, here is a link for you!




​Word of the Day

Each day's word is from our story - can you use a dictionary to "clarify" the word




 If you don't have a dictionary use this link


Don't forget to write the word and it's meaning on your chart - in the Home Learning pack! 

PE - Mini Gym

How to Make a Home Gym! The children have had a few PE lessons with Mr Woods who showed us how to make a mini gym - with "stations" like in a circuits class. Do each activity for no more than 5 minutes then change to the next!

* step up/step down on the bottom step of your stairs

*on the carpet - Superman/Superwoman

*tricep dips - on the bottom step of your stairs

*bicep curls - using 2 socks instead of 2 beanbags!

* ladders - lay out socks on the floor like the rungs of a ladder - jump through the gaps

Have lots of fun learning together, stay safe and see you all soon!

For safeguarding reasons, if someone different is to collect your child at the end of the day, please let us know! You can tell us at the start of the day or by phoning the school office.



Our PE times change each half term so to avoid confusion, it is best if your child's PE kit stays in school for the half term rather than being sent home each week!
Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school (T-shirt, shorts and pumps/trainers) and that all items are clearly labelled with their name. We encourage children to practise getting dressed at home to help them get changed independently in school.
Snack is 20p a day (or £1 a week) for a piece of fruit in the morning. Please send your child's money in in an envelope with their name clearly marked.
Free fruit is provided in the afternoon.

Reading books:

Please read with your child every night and bring book bags into school every day. It is important that you sign and date their reading record when you have heard them at home!

Water bottles:

Children can bring in a water bottle to keep in class which they can access throughout the day. It is school policy however, that drinks must be water only. Please make sure your child's name is written clearly on their water bottle.
Homework will be sent home each Friday, to be returned the following Monday!
Please ensure that your child does not bring in toys from home as we have found that these are often the cause of upset, especially if they are lost or damaged. 
Thank you for your support.​
