This Week's Top Idea!

Have you ever felt worried? There are lots of things that can make us worried, even without having school closure – we may worry about homework, or our friends, or even what our new neighbours will be like. We like this idea from Cosmic Kids, it helps us to recognise when we are worried, and reminds us that we don’t need to let our worries take over.

This Week's Learning

You can find all your learning for this week by clicking on the relevant links: Reception Children and

Years One & Two.

The following sections show just a small selection of your work. You can work directly from this page and also from your worksheets.


I would love to hear about some of the activities that you have been enjoying over the Christmas Break. Did you receive some gifts? Have you been sledging? Built a snowman? Write a recount of some of the activities that you enjoyed using first, then, next and add a picture.

Challenge: can you use ‘and’, ‘or’, ‘but’ to extend your sentences? Can you use an exclamation mark?


On Monday, in school, we started thinking about shape – we talked about a lot of shapes, but only two dimensional ones (2D). In the video, you will learn about 3D shapes.


In R.E. we are beginning to explore the idea of special people. This week we are thinking about the people in our family, our school and our local community. There is a story to read together on your worksheets and, afterwards, can you draw or paint a picture of someone who is special to you?


On Monday we looked at Google Earth and zoomed in on lots of cold and hot places on Earth.

We found the North and South Poles and we also talked about the Equator. Click here and be an explorer and spend some time exploring the world yourself. Look for hot and cold countries. Can you find Africa? How about Australia? Look for the oceans too – can you remember their names? What about the continents?

And finally...

We have thought a lot about 2D and 3D shapes this week in maths and we have looked for evidence of shapes around us. Can you finish the week with some junk modelling? Send us your photos if you do.

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks
