Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero


Good morning everyone and well done for making it to Friday with such enthusiasm, great ideas and, judging by the Zoom yesterday, very much still smiling. Everything is different but together with your parents you are doing an AMAZING job. It was the highlight of our week to see you all so we will keep up our meetings each week. πŸŒŸπŸ™ŒπŸ˜€

Great to see you all!

I look as though I’m peeping over a wall taking the photo! πŸ˜‚Don’t worry if you didn’t join us this week we will hopefully see you with a bright smile next week. πŸ˜€I think it will be on Friday but I will confirm the time. 

Safe and well calls


By the end of next week we will have tried to contact you all just to 'check in' with you as part of our safe and well calls. Please don't think that we are 'checking up' on school work, we are making contact to see if we can help in any way to support you and if your child would like a chat with us then we would love to talk to them; a way of coming together in these very peculiar times! smiley

Year 1

Today we continue our work on counting on to 20. Today you look at different tools to help you to do this, such as number lines and base ten. 


Year 2


Today you will be introduce to the x symbol, which represents 'sets of' or repeated addition. For example, 5+5+5 = 3x5 3 sets of 5 =15

Our Religion Learning


 Today we start work on our new topic, Families and Celebrations. We will be recognising our own families, hearing stories about Jesus and his family and understanding that we are important and special members of God’s family. 
Today we start by thinking about our own wonderful families. πŸ’•πŸ™Œ

A short powerpoint. I will read the story I talk about in the video box below.

The story to go with the PowerPoint

I think you will find this a nice easy task to start with. You are going to illustrate your family; maybe those who you live with so we don't have too many people on one page. If you have parents in different houses do include both! smileyheart Also, you may have grandmas, grandads, cousins, aunties and uncles who are important to you. If you would like to include these and you struggle for room, maybe use two sheets of paper. Draw them, colour them in using paints, watercolours, colouring pencils or felt tips. You choose. 

Then either in a little bubble above or below each person write a short description of what makes each person special. 

Worksheet (or use plain paper or be creative and draw and cut out your family members and write on the back what makes them special.

Have a wonderful day and a great weekend when it comes. I haven't included a PE lesson, but Joe Wicks is back on and make sure you have some exercise... maybe with your family! smiley
