Useful days

Reading books from school are provided but, please also take advantage of both Oxford Reading Buddy and Bug Club online at home as well as enjoying your own books and reading for pleasure - your log in details for these have been stuck in at the back of your reading records. Please log all the reading that you do (outside of Bug Club or Oxford Reading Buddy) in your reading records and hand it in to Miss Fleming every day. All books that are sent home must be returned to school when you are finished with them. Reading Books are changed on a Friday.

Home Learning Pack

In the event that your child is self-isolating, please work through this learning pack - Year 1 or Year 2.  Please find the learning pack at the bottom of this page under 'Files to Download'. 

Each lesson delivered by a teacher with a pre-recorded video as well as quizzes, worksheets and creative activities. It’s all easy to use, there’s no login or password, you can access our lessons on any device, and pupils only need materials they can find at home.

We have looked at Oak National Academy in class- it is a great resource for catch-up revision work and daily lessons if your are well but at home.



We did a Maths 'Time' lesson - children are forever asking the Time- Is it breaktime? Is it lunchtime? Is it assembly? I have to say - I love children wearing an analogue watch (watch with hands) to learn the time - they pick it up so naturally - o'clock, half past, quarter past/to etc.
