Year 1

Welcome to Year 1.  Please check here for latest updates.  We hope that we can build many memories before the children move into Year 2.  

Virtual Sports Day - Friday 10th july

The Year 6 blue bubble wrote to Miss Dillon last week requesting a Sports day.  They feel that this is possible even in the COVID times.  

For the children coming into school, they are already able to wear non-school uniform and so can we ask that this be sports wear e.g. tracksuit bottoms and t-shirts.  The Virtual Sports Day will be launched at 9:15 by Miss Rees via Zoom on our normal zoom codes. 

The sports day will not be overly strenuous and it is very unlikely that you will need to train in preparation for this.  We invite parents and family members to join in as well at home using the attached form for recording timings for the individual challenges.


It would be great to see photographic evidence and short videos of the challenges at home when you catch up with the year group via Zoom throughout the day.

If your child is at home, you will need:

1 wooden or large metal spoon

1 egg shaped object

1 bean bag or loaf of bread/ bag of sugar.

Tape measure

Recording sheet (attached)

Timer or timer on your phone.

You will need to create a Sports arena – You can use chalk or solid objects for marking out a 5 metre track in the garden or on the street.











Zoom Lessons: Extra Resources

Please find below some useful resources for your child's zoom lessons. These act as an extension or consolidation to the main lesson. You may like to print these out but do not have to. You are welcome to download and look at these resources at any point but please do not complete the work before the session. 


Please find below resources for maths this week. For each lesson there are 2 or 3 different levels of challenge. You or your child could choose a level suitable for them and then just print these each day or alternately print all resources and choose the correct level of challenge depending on how your child is getting on through the week. ‘Support’ challenges are easier, ‘Main’ challenges are aimed at most children and ‘Extend’ challenges are harder. Wherever possible we will put all levels on the screen during Zoom but where this is not possible we will display the main challenge.
