Letter to Year 1 20.01.2021


Hello Year 1, 

What fantastic start you have all had to your home learning and it has been lovely to see some of you in school as well. We have now uploaded some more work for you to complete over the next two weeks. We are still focusing on our topic ‘Farm Time Warp’ and so a lot of the activities are linked to this. 

We have included a possible timetable for you to follow. This is by no means set in stone and you can timetable your day as you wish, however this is just a helpful guidance for you all. This can be found below. In addition, we would like to mention timing. This work is to be completed over two weeks and should be completed with this in mind. We have put hints next to some activities regarding how long this should take the children to complete.  

We have loved receiving emails from you all with work that you have done at home; it is lovely to see you concentrating and enjoying your learning. A reminder that we do not require a daily email of work you have completed, just evidence of two pieces of work a week. You can either send this in one email a week or two separate emails. Of course, if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us on our school email or on SeeSaw. 

We hope you are all safe and well. Remember you are all doing amazing! 

Miss Eden and Miss Macleod

Letter to Year 1 06.01.2021


Hello Year 1 and Parents/Carers,


We hope that you have had a lovely Christmas and New Year. We are very sad that we won’t be seeing you in school for a little bit and are already looking forward to having you back.


Our topic this half term is ‘Farm Time Warp’. We will be looking at lots of stories linked to farms, learning about different animals and thinking about the history of farming. We have uploaded lots of lovely activities to get you started and will be updating these every two weeks on a Wednesday. A quick reminder that the online reading books on Rising Stars are still available to you.


We would love to see some of the work you have been doing so please send us two pieces of work each week via our Year 1 email, [email protected]. Of course, if you have any questions or need a little guidance please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Miss Eden will be responding to 1VE emails and comments and Miss Macleod will be running 1PB initially. We will also be working together on providing home learning and ensuring this is consistent with what is being taught in school; hopefully guaranteeing all children have access to the same quality learning.


We understand this is a strange time but remember you are all AMAZING. Keep up the fantastic work and we look forward to hearing from you very soon.


Miss Eden, Mrs Burman, Miss Macleod and all the Year 1 Team.
