Wow! What amazing scores! All of Year 1 have been working super hard but well done to 1M for their well earned victory!

Please keep checking our page for new activities and tasks to complete, as well as for our daily lesson content :)

Hello everyone! We just want to say how proud we all are of you. You have been working so hard and doing a fantastic job.

We have been missing seeing you and are looking forward to having some of you back with us this half term. For those of you that won't be joining us just yet, don't worry because we are still here to support you through this time and we will still be giving you a call to see how you are getting on. We will keep updating this page with new work for you to use and you can email us on Purple Mash by using 2email.

On Mondays and Wednesdays, there is a very entertaining history video on YouTube. All our children know Dave, who comes to our school every World Book Day to tell stories and make us laugh. He will be dressing up and telling stories with a historical setting on these two days every week. This is another great way to keep the children entertained and learn some important history. His company is Histrionics - @allabouthistory

Here is the link to his latest video:

Over the next few weeks we are all probably going to be accessing the internet even more than before, either for education or entertainment, so it is more important than ever that we know how to keep ourselves safe online. Think U Know (an education programme from the National Crime Agency) have launched a campaign to keep children safe at home, including activity packs for a variety of ages. The 15 minute activities are for the adult to complete with the child and new activities will be launched fortnightly. Please follow the link below to the website for more details.

Virtual PE Challenge

As we can't take part in any real life competitions, ACES (our PE provider and organiser of cluster competitions) has put together some virtual challenges for us to do at home. Have a go at each challenge as many times as you like, record your best score and then email it (on Purple Mash) to Miss Munday or Mrs Singh by 1:00 pm on Friday. Let's see if all our scores combined will win us each week's competition against all the other schools in our cluster! 

 This week, it's a sprinted activity. How quickly can you sprint 15 metres? Have as many goes as you like. Send your fastest time into Miss Munday or Mrs Singh.

Watch Kyle Dench in the video to see how to do this challenge:
