Reading Challenge

Can you read a story book to practice your phonics? Can you predict what will happen in the story and think about how the characters are feeling?

Practice our phase 3 sounds on Letter-join using our log in:



Maths Challenge

Can you make your own addition and subtraction game?

Also, have a go at Hit the Button - Number Bonds.

Writing Challenge

Can you draw and label an astronaut? What do they look like? What body parts do they have? Where do they go?

Creative Challenge

Could you make a 3D planet to hang from our ceiling? Maybe you could make an astronaut too!

Family Challenge

As a family, could you sort through different materials that you find in your house? This may be things in your bedroom, such as clothes, or your kitchen, such as utensils like a knife and fork. What material is it? Is it hard or soft? Is it shiny or dull? Is it rough or smooth?

Recent Learning

Year 1 greeted some special guests: bearded dragons, snakes, stick insects... and some super cute bunnies!

Year 1 have been to Dragon School! Just like Zog in their class book, our students learnt how to fly, roar and catch a princess. Then, they watched the Zog film, while enjoying hot chocolate and popcorn. A roar-some day!

Year 1 visited the allotment, where they examined and sketched plants and flowers. And, of course, they enjoyed some delicious fresh apples!
