Before we begin today's lesson, we are going to have a flashback Friday to keep some of the skills we learnt in the Autumn term fresh in our brains. Click on the link below to go to the form. Remember to put your name so Miss Martin knows who has done the work.

BLUE WORK - back 1 step challenge

GREEN WORK - regular challenge

PURPLE WORK - forward 1 step challenge

These levels of differentiation, for some pieces of learning, will ensure that your child can access teaching and learning that is pitched correctly for them. If you are not sure which colour to do then please email Miss Martin to check.




On a Friday afternoon in Year 1 we have GOLDEN TIME! laugh


I think you will agree with me when I say that this week has been very different to the normal weeks at school, but more than ever I think you have deserved your golden time. Play, be creative, make things, dress up, tell jokes and let your imagination run wild.


Don't forget to send Miss Martin your pictures or videos on SEESAW! 


► STORY TIME! laugh

Tabby McTat read by Miss Martin and George

I really hope you have been enjoying the stories this week with Miss Martin and George, but please remember to keep reading to your grown-ups at home. Remember to record all your fantastic reading in your yellow reading diaries so Miss Martin can see when we come back to school and maybe if you have read enough you will get a reading certificate! You could even send Miss Martin a video of you reading your book or some pictures of you reading as she would love to see! laugh


If you would like to change your school reading books, please email Miss Martin and we can arrange a day and time that is suitable to come and drop your old books off and to collect some new ones. Alternatively, please remember you can go to Oxford Owl and read lots of great books on there for free! You can log in by :
