Hi Seb, lovely to hear that you've been so busy! I've been so impressed by your reading as well, keep up the great work! If you can, email me a picture of your finished map and I'll put it on this page so the class can see it :) Miss Whieldon x

Hi Miss Whieldon and all of year 1 I have been keeping myself really busy by playing Maths games on the “The maths Factor” , I’ve been reading the Julian Clary Bolds books and telling my Mummy and Daddy all about them - they are very funny. I’ve also been keeping fit by doing PE with Joe Wicks every day and cosmic yoga plus lost of playing football outside. Today I am going to design a treasure map and hopefully my Mummy and Daddy will be able to find my treasure . Miss you all lots and I can’t wait to see you all again

Hello to the lovely Year 1 class! I hope you are all well and showing mum and dad's just how much energy you have Monday-Friday's! I am missing you all but thanks to the guestbook, I get to read all of the amazing activities you are completing at home. Whilst I imagine some of you have stayed in your pyjamas all day (very jealous), myself, Miss Whieldon and Miss Forrester have been at school with the children whose parents are key workers and have created a very bright and bold display on the gates to our school. If like me and you are going for daily walks with your family, then why not go past school and see what we have been up to? Even better, take a photo of you next to the display and post it on the guestbook so we can all see! I can't wait to see all of your smiley faces - stay safe and keep in touch! Best wishes (from at least a 2 metre distance) Miss Atkins :)

Hi Edie, lovely to hear you've been reading so much, and homemade bread and pizza sounds delicious! I'm sure your rainbow picture is beautiful, and will certainly make anyone walking or driving past your window smile :) love Miss Whieldon x

Hi Miss Whieldon, Mrs Wheat and the rest of y1. I have been reading my first chapter book called 'The Twitches Meet a Puppy, Teacup House' and I have almost finished it. I have been reading with my Mummy & Daddy during the days we have been off. I have also played out in the garden with Harry and Betsy, my dog. I have been making homemade bread and pizza with my Daddy. I am completing the work Miss Whieldon gave us and have painted a rainbow picture for my window. I hope you are all ok. Love from Edie

Hi Year 1! Hope you are all well, let me know what you've been up to!

Year 1 School Closure Work


Dear children,

Hello my lovely lot! I know this must be so strange for you all, and I'm missing you all already, but I hope you're enjoying being with your family. Although I'm sure you will complete the work set below, please try to also find time for making, building, creating, imagining, experimenting and just having fun! Please let me know how you are getting on in the guestbook above, I would love to hear all about your home adventures! 

Sending lots of love to you all!

Miss Whieldon


Dear parents, if you have any questions or issues regarding the work set, or simply want to share photos of what you've been up to, please feel free to contact me via fwhieldon.olsw@ctkcc.co.uk  I can be contacted during school hours and will respond within 24hours. If I am ill, another teacher will be able to respond on my behalf. Stay safe and well, I'm sure you're doing an amazing job! 

Miss Whieldon



DAILY PHONICS/READING - updated 29/03 

Read a great book, either with your parents or by yourself for at least 10-20 minutes each day. Talk to your parents about the book you have read.


Parents: At the top of this page we have included a list of guided reading questions and phonic sound mats that you can download and use alongside your child's reading. Please practise reading the sounds, especially phase 4 and 5, and recognising them when reading with your child. 


Your child has a personal login for www.activelearnprimary.co.uk which gives you access to a range of allocated books at their appropriate level, which have quizzes embedded in them to check comprehension. There are also interactive maths games and additional resources to assist with home learning. If you are unsure of your child’s login details, get in touch via our emails and we will be happy to send them out again. 


For a weekly list of spellings and SPaG exercises to practise, please see the attached spelling lists and SPaG mats in the document box above.



DAILY MATHS - updated 29/03


Follow this link to see a range of 5 lessons per week. Aim for lesson 1 on Monday, lesson 2 on Tuesday etc. Watch the videos first and then have a go at the accompanying worksheets. Each week White Rose will release a new set of weekly videos, (which include our Start Of the Day Activities!) and accompanying worksheets, so please check back each week for the next set!


In addition to this, log on to your ActiveLearn account for interactive games that will aid your child with building their fluency of number facts. 


OTHER SUBJECTS - updated 29/03


Science - See the file list above for a lesson and activity on LEGO! Read through the lesson plan and PowerPoint, and have a go at the activity sheet, using the Scientific Vocabulary mat to check your child's recognition and use of the correct vocabulary.


STEM - See the file list above (Starters for STEM) for some ideas on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) exploration and experimentation! 


RE - Practise your recall of the Hail Mary, using the activity sheet in the file list above to help.


RE Secret Mission! - This week's secret mission is to say something that you love about your family once a day. You'd be surprised how big a smile you will put on their faces!


Geography - Create a treasure map of your house or garden! Look at some examples of birds-eye view maps, and draw a map to show where you have hidden a treasure for your parents or siblings to find! Don't forget to include a key, and a compass using North, South, East and West (Google maps/Google Earth can help to figure out the direction of the house/garden).


History - Choose an explorer to research. Some suggestions are Ibn Battuta, Christopher Columbus, Ernest Shackleton, Robert Falcon Scott, Neil Armstrong, Sacajawea, Lewis & Clark, but don't limit yourself. Create a poster or factfile on their lives and accomplishments. (This could turn out to be a fairly chunky, so I'll keep this activity up for 2 weeks)


Art & D&T - Find a material that you have never used before to create a piece of artwork. This might be something a bit more technical, like pastels or charcoal (if you have such items at home!) or it could be something weird and wonderful, like shaving foam or salt! Get creative, and don't forget to email me some photos!



Home learning- Useful websites. 


If you wish to extend your child’s learning, we have a list of some websites we would recommend that offer free home-learning packs for parents. This list will be updated as more are published.

In Twinkl’s case, they are offering a month of free “ultimate” membership to parents educating from home, which would allow you to download thousands of resources, ranging from handwriting, spelling, reading, maths, topic and much more - enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS or PARENTSTWINKLHELPS





www.phonicsplay.co.uk - free usage of the site using the username: march20 and the password: home



 http://www.amazingeducationalresources.com  is a website that lists a huge range of resources and websites for you to visit and use alongside your home-learning. 


These websites require you to register (for free) and provide free ebooks via their website or app.






 A couple of parents said that a daily schedule would be helpful, so I have attached two possible examples. However, please  don't take these as necessary rules to follow; they are merely suggestions of how you could possibly structure your day.
