A story about Staying home

Hello Everyone!

We hope this finds you all keeping well and staying safe.

We hope you have been having fun and enjoying this lovely weather.

Let us know if you did something! It is always lovely to hear what you are doing and how you are...If you haven't contacted us we would love to hear from you. Tell us about something you have been doing or learned-it does not have to be to do with school. At this time you will be learning lots of new skills or creating lots of things.

You can contact us at 

Have you had a go at the History in the bag activity. We are so looking forward to hearing and seeing the ideas that you have come up with. See the details about it in the link below.  Social distancing has been different, unlike anything any of us have experienced before. Are there things about it that you have particularly liked or disliked? Include those ideas in your bag. You may want to include the poem about yourself that we have included for literacy this week. The Maths activities are about turns and describing movement.  Have you tried out any of the Nature Detective activities? If you are able to get out and about with your family these might be activities you might like to try. Keep reading and sharing stories too. 

We hope you have a good Half Term next week. Take a break from school activities!  Enjoy yourselves!

We will not be updating the Year 2 page until the week after next.

  Be well and take good care!

Catch up soon.

Lots of love everyone!

New! Are these statements always true, sometimes true or never true?  If they are sometimes true, find both kinds of example.  Happy thinking!

Maths - work carefully to find all the possibilities. Look at the Year 1 page for similar work and year three for an extra challenge!

Keeping Active

While we are not at school, it is important to keep active, both for our physical health and our brain health. Remember, little and often is best, get out in the fresh air too if you can. Attached is a list of great links to help get you moving (keep checking back as new ones will be added). Parents, you can join in too, no one is watching!

PE and Swimming

PE is on a Wednesday afternoon with Mr Newman. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school every week. This should include a t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls or trainers. Please could all jewellery be removed at home.


Children will swim every week in groups on a Tuesday morning when the repairs to the pool have been completed. PE kits will need to be in school on Tuesdays as well so the children can participate in fitness sessions with the Swimming and Dance Coaches. All children will need a swimming costume/trunks, a swimming hat and a towel. Swimming is an important part of the PE curriculum and all children are expected to participate. If your child is unable to swim please provide a note explaining why. Please could all jewellery be removed at home.
