SEN Resources for Home Learning

Hello Year One,

Mrs Sykes and I had a big chat on the phone about how much we are missing you all!

Did you enjoy your story?  Watch this space I will be adding my challenge the first week back!


Hope your home learning has been going well, my hamsters have been working hard!!

To Our Year One Family, 

As we enter week 2, the Year One team would like to send you our well wishes. We hope you have had the opportunity to read books together, explore, learn, laugh and smile. Have you learnt anything about yourself? We are missing seeing your smiling faces and hearing you wish us a good day each morning, but very much looking forward to the next smile! 

Have a great week.

Good Morning Year One, 

We will be thinking about you all today and imagining our good mornings in the register (with your big smiles of course!). Have you got a book you want a grown up to read with you? The year one team have all picked a book that we will be reading each evening and look forward to telling you all about it. Can you remember when we read ‘My Naughty Little Sister’? I wonder what your favourite naughty adventure she went on was. 
Have a good day, be kind and caring.

Love The Year One Team 😊

Indo Boarding. Year One were amazing, they worked so well in pairs, listened, took turns, were patient and they used their balancing skills.

English Hub Reading Workshop

Thank you all so much for all our wonderful gifts we adore them all.


Another term over and it has been a lovely term, the children have grown so much this past term becoming very independent and really working hard on their Gem Powers, working together in groups, not giving up when things get tough and also helping others thinking about kindness to all.

We hope you all have an amazing Christmas relax enjoy and most of all have fun see you in 2020

The whole year one team.

The Children’s first term is over and they have all settled into year one well learning new routines and using their Emerald power sticking with it when things get tricky.

So much has happened in this term English we looked at our story “Man on the Moon” the children wrote story maps/postcards/posters all about life on the moon.

Math's we have been looking at more/less, missing digits and writing number sentences.

Science this term was all about looking at light and what reflects light we also looked at the life of Neil Armstrong.

The children encountered their first term at forest school, they learnt so much from clearing the Autumn leaves to planting, making wonderful pieces of art to making and drinking their own apple juice.

We all had an amazing music week no doubt you would of all heard the children coming home singing “There Once was an Ugly Duckling” the children had such excitement during this week who would have thought we could learn math's through music notes!  We entered our final few days with celebrating our very own “Apple Day” each child drew their apple, tasted their apple and then we described and wrote sentence about our apple. 

A fantastic part of our term was the lovely wonderful parents and grandparents that came in to read for our mystery reader, we thank you all so much the children fully enjoyed every single one.  Anyone wanting to read to the class for Mystery Reader please let Mrs Sykes and Mrs Solomon know.

Check out the fabulous photos from term one.

As always our door is always open we all hope you have a wonderful holiday and see you next term.

Our First Mystery Reader  1 The children really enjoyed their story.

Welcome back to a brand new term and wow what a great start to year one.  The children have come back ready enjoying catching up with their friends, they have also done some great learning already.  We have so much learning this term, forest school, writing stories, phonics, reading, problem solving, cooking and much much more.  If you have a certificate from the library summer holiday reading scheme please bring it in and tell us all about it.  Parents we would be very grateful if you could name all your child’s clothes so we ensure all jumpers and cardigans go to their rightful owners, please ensure your child has their P.E kit in school at all the time as we do P.E twice a week.  Water bottles are to be brought in to class please ensure it is water only, this helps are brain in our learning.

Next THURSDAY (12th September) is our first morning of forest school please ensure children come in to school in their old clothes also please bring in their wellies in case it rains or gets a little muddy, all children will change back into their uniform (please ensure you send this in).

Gem Project – Where every child sparkles – this term we are looking at our Ruby power supporting others, looking after each other helping each other in our learning and friendship.

We are available every morning and afternoon if you wish to talk with us our door is always open and we look forward to the term ahead.
