Friday Morning Message

We also have an assembly from Mrs McAvan! Watch it here...


Let's begin by reading the next part of our class story...

Chapter Five

...we will read the next part of our class story after half term! Remember to do lots of reading yourself at home! I'm sure that you have lots of books, but don't forget that you can access eBooks at Rising Stars or Oxford Owl. 'Audible' are also doing free books for you to listen to and don't forget those CBeebies Bedtime Stories! (My boys love them!). 



Learning Objective: I understand what gratitude is. 


Last week, we watched a video all about wellbeing which talked about gratitude. Can you remember what we mean by gratitude? Let's take a closer look...


We have lots of things to be grateful and thankful for. Thinking of these things can improve our wellbeing! 



Today, I would like you to create a 'gratitude jar' by following the instructions below...


I would love to see your completed jars! Send me a picture at I am going to make one too!!

This weekend it is Valentine's Day! Why not show someone how grateful you are to have them in your life! Follow this link to some special activities...

You could do these today, over the weekend or during half term! I am going to be doing them too with my boys! Have fun!


Learning Objective: I can represent numbers to 50. 


We are continuing to look at numbers to 50. Today, we will look at representations. Can you remember what we mean by representations? I hope so! We have done lots and lots of work on representations in Year One. Take a look at this video from White Rose Maths to find out more...



Practice representing numbers to 50 by completing the worksheets below.

Parents: There are lots of useful tips and questions on these worksheets to support and extend your child's learning. 


Learning Objective: I can write a story. 


This week, we have imagined that we are Arctic explorers and we have created our very own adventure stories. Well done everybody! The stories that I have seen so far have been incredible! Today, we will be writing the ending of our story. Let's begin...

English Friday


Write the ending of your story. Try and think back to your reason for going to the Arctic or Antarctica. Was it to rescue something, like Tom, or to find something, like me! Did you accomplish your task?


Once you have completed your story, send it over to me! I can't wait to read them!


Learning Objective: I am learning about Phase 5 alternative spellings and pronunciations ('ie' as 'ee'). 


We are continuing our learning of Phase 5 alternative spellings and pronunciations. Today, we will be focusing on 'ie' as 'ee'. Take a look...

Cut and paste the letters to make the 'ie' as 'ee' word for each picture. Then write each word in a sentence. Remember to make sure that you have spelt your 'ie' as 'ee' word correctly and don't forget to practice reading your sentences out loud.

Please don't forget to keep practicing your spellings over at Phonics Play! It is FREE and FUN! You can practise your alternative spellings and pronunciations by playing 'Cheeky Monkey's or 'Acorn Adventures'. Just login with jan21 and the password home. Why not practising all of your Phase 5 phonics? Play the 'Pirate's Treasure Chest' game! We love playing this in school!



Learning Objective: I am learning about significant people in history. 


In our Topic lesson on Tuesday, we learnt about some famous explorers who went to Antarctica! We then chose one of these explorers, or an expedition, and found out more about it. I really wanted us all to share our research with each other, just like we would do in class! So take a look at all of your classmate's hard work. I think you are going to be very impressed!

Well done to everybody for your fantastic research! I am so impressed with all of the different ways that you presented your findings. You should be very, very proud of yourselves! 


Today's lesson brings us to the end of our topic 'Poles Apart'. We have learnt so much, in just a few short weeks, and I have loved finding out about Antarctica with you all. I'm very sad that we could not do this topic all together in school. But I just want to say how fantastic you all are for working so hard at home... I hope that you have all enjoyed the topic as much as I have! 



What has been your favourite part of our topic 'Poles Apart'?

This can be anything! Learning about arctic animals, making your Antarctica model or even one of our stories! It could even be your favourite fact that you have learnt! Send me a short video, with your favourite part of our topic work. You can even send me a photograph to include as well. I will then put them all together to create a video that we can share with all of our families!
