Autumn Term 2020
Welcome back to all our Year 1/2 pupils. We hope you all had a lovely Summer Holiday and are looking forward to a fun-filled year with lots of exciting new learning.
For all of us this has been a very different return to school with new ways of entering and leaving school and classrooms that look very different. As we know our children are very resilient and
have all settled well and quickly adapted to the new classroom rules and changes to the school day. We are very proud of them.
Every morning there will be a member of staff at the door to greet your child.
As we are unable to have parents inside the building at this time any queries you may have please email me at:
Our topic this term is
“What matters to me”
For the first few weeks we will be prioritising the children’s well being and completing lots of activities to help the children feel safe and confident within our class while getting to know them.
We will also get them involved in the planning of our topic and find out what matters to them.
P.E. for our class is on a Wednesday. No kit is necessary.
Please clearly label all cardigans and jumpers.
On Wednesdays the children are welcome to wear joggers/ leggings and trainers.
Reading books will be sent home once a week on an allocated day for each child.
Reading at home is extremely beneficial for your child. We appreciate your support with reading and spelling.
Please return book and record book the next day and make comments wherever possible.
Book bags can be purchased for 50p from school.
As we are unable to provide fruit at the moment children will be able to bring a piece of fruit for snack time. If your child has trouble peeling their fruit please could you make sure it is already prepared for them to eat. Also if they are having grapes please could these be cut in half and not given whole.
Milk will be provided in school or the children can have a drink from their water bottle.
Thank you for your continued support.
Summer Term 2020
Hello everyone, Croeso Pawb
Hope you all enjoyed Easter and had lots of eggs! Normally it would be the start of our Summer Term and we would be starting a new topic and thinking hard about all the different activities we could do. Sadly we are unable to do this and have to stay home and stay safe . So please keep practising your reading, writing simple sentences about what you have been getting up to. Writing numbers to 100 and beyond , counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s plus addition and subtraction sums. A good resource that might help with this is BBC Bitesize that are putting on daily lessons in Maths and English starting this week . Plus the RWI sounds that we cover in school SET 2 on You Tube by Ruth Miskin training.
Dont forget you can email me at
Missing you all Mrs May & Mrs Cox X
Good morning everyone -Bore da pawb,
Hope you have been enjoying your time at home in the lovely sunshine we've been having and doing lots of exciting things with your family. As I am not on Facebook I have requested that our Year 1 children join our Year 2's on Google classroom. Hopefully with the help of Miss Davies we will have this up and running soon so you can all access weekly activities, links to useful websites plus exercise videos from our own Mr Morgan!
Try as many of the activities as you like but please don't feel pressurised to complete them all.
It would be lovely to hear from you. Please keep in touch on Google classroom or by email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe and hope to see you all soon. Mrs Mayx

Thrive activities useful for parents of children up to 7 years old.
The role of the parent and carer is to support children to find out who they are and what they like to do. With this comes greater independence and responsibility, with children learning that they can still ask for help. We have put together some activities to support healthy social and emotional development through creativity, art and play. Here are some creative activities that you can use with your child, aged 3 to 7 years.
Imagination can help manage big feelings for both children and adults.
It’s ok to feel frustrated as the adult when times get hard – take a deep breath and have a cuppa.
Remember – it’s ok to say no. Learning about boundaries is an important life skill.
Age Range: 4 - 8 years. This hilarious picture book from the bestselling, acclaimed author-illustrator team of Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss tells the advent...

Speak soon Mrs May 🙂
Here are a few tips to get the children to do some activities:
. Try and devise a structure for the days Monday - Friday and keep to times .
. Make sure within this routine there is plenty of time for play and the children know which part of the day is “ their time”.
Children need time to process learning, have fun and let off steam!
This helps them focus on the parts of the day when they need to learn.
Remember you are doing a fab job and doing things as a family is important at this time especially as children are unable to interact and play with their friends.
