Y1/2 w/c 23rd March

Here we are in our first week of our home/school adventure. We hope you can join in as much as possible. Each week we will make sure you have plenty of ideas to keep you busy.

If you haven’t yet thought about it – we recommend that you find a way to exercise every single day. If you need an idea, how about P.E. with Joe?

Ideas for

This week try to really work on your numbers – think about counting in steps (2,s 5s, 10s), make sure you can write your numbers correctly. Try rolling a dice three times and making your own addition sums – get someone to check them for you.


This week we are going to try writing a diary entry every day. You can use your knowledge of phonics and your key word card to help you come up with what to say. We’d love it if you shared some of your diary entries with us.

For why not

try growing something? Eat an apple and, when you get to the core, carefully remove the seeds. Put these in a yoghurt pot/jam jar with some soil (you can get this from the garden), make sure you water it and give it plenty of light. Keep an eye on it and see what happens.

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

Claire Halstead
