Meet your teacher 2020-2021
Welcome back to some of our Year 1 pupils - we are very happy to see your smiling happy faces back safe and well in school. We will be helping you to recover learning, catch up on missed learning and get ready for year 2.
For others in our Year 1 cohort, it would be lovely to see you back soon. In the meantime, we hope that you continue to stay safe and well at home and know that we are thinking of you also.
During this phased return to school, some provision for your learning will slightly change:
Year 1 in school will have lessons taught by the Year 1 team and access homework via purple mash.
Year 1 not yet in school will also access the same homework via purple mash. In addition to this, we have provided a link to the Government's online school 'Oak Academy', which provide daily lessons that can be accessed at any time of the day. They follow a scheduled timetable that can also be found by following the link.
The homework website being used is:
The Year 1 'at home' learning portal:
Pupils can also access TTRockstars to learn their 2, 5 and 10 times table:
The TTRockstars website is:
If your child is having difficulty accessing any of the sites listed, they can contact their teacher via Purple Mash during the school day.
Please note that I have completed the curriculum overview for the summer term and attached it at the bottom of this page. This will show you what the children should have been learning during the summer term.

Homework is given to children on a Thursday, children are expected to return the homework the following Monday. If your child struggles to complete their homework, we do offer a homework club, where a member of staff is able to support your child.
Our PE day is Thursday.
Your child is expected to bring their PE kit at the start of each term, this consists of:
- a pair of black shorts
- a white top
- a pair of trainers or pumps
- white socks
- outdoor kit black or navy tracksuit bottoms and a top or hoodie
Please be aware that girls will not be allowed to wear their tights for PE and will need a pair of socks to change into.
Earrings must be removed for PE. If your child is unable to take them out themselves, please ensure they are removed in the morning before school.
Children are expected to read at home at least 3 times per week with an adult or an older sibling. Please sign their reading diary each time you read with your child. They will be checked on a weekly basis.
