While We Can't Hug

Still image for this video
Many of us will be back learning and playing with our friends but we can't hug just yet. Many of us might be starting to see other family members but we can't hug just yet. For some us, we are still not able to see and hug those that we desperately want to. There are lots of other things though, that we can do to show that we care...


smileyHOME LEARNING - Summer Term 2020smiley


For those children that we will be welcoming back, we are very excited to see them and we promise to take good care of them. We know for many it will be strange but our primary focus will be on their emotional health and well being. We want the children to be happy back in school. For those of you that, understandably, don't feel ready to send your children back yet, we want to reassure you that we will continue to support you and the children with their home learning to the best of our ability.


In school we shall be beginning to slowly reintroduce the children back to short Phonics, English and Maths sessions as well as Reading. This will be woven in with lots of activities to support and promote the children's wellbeing. The afternoons will mix wellbeing activities with lots of outdoor provision and the opportunity to continue and extend our Nature Detectives topic.


We will continue to post home learning on this page in the one section for Summer Term (2). This home learning is for those of you whose children are not returning just yet but is also to be used by all parents for the days that your child is not in school. Phonics and Reading are presented as grids with activities that you can dip in and out of over the remainder of the term. English and Maths will be updated regularly so keep checking in to find out what we are doing each week so that you can follow up at home. For our Topic work we are embracing the Wildlife Trust's 30 Days Wild, which includes a passport with suggested activities to tick off each day as well as a bank of other make and do activities (that you could select from if you wish to choose your own daily challenges to mark off). We shall also post a daily 'Wild' challenge which you may wish to use instead of or as well as any other activity. Just click the home learning subject icons to access, view and print if you wish (although this isn't always necessary).


We will continue to be available for advice and support via email although due to now being in school our responses may not be as swift. We will be available to respond to emails on Wednesdays but if it is an emergency then do contact the school. We would love to keep receiving your messages and photos of all the work you complete at home as well as being able to find out more about all the other lovely things you have been up to on your days not in school. For children in 1GS please email and for children in 1CC,


We can't wait to see many of you, we have missed you lots. For those of you that we have to wait a little longer to see, please know that we have been and continue to think about you lots and we can't wait for the time when we get to see all of you again heart

Welcome back Year 1!
