Friday 3rd April
It is the end of another week, I am really missing being in school with you all, but it is cheering me up to see the work that some of you are producing. You are working so hard and I know it can't be easy. Well done and keep it up!
My stars for this week are for those children who have completed their work on purple Mash. Thank you children for having a go, I was very impressed! Children who have not had a go yet still have today to complete it and if you remember to hand it in I can look at and comment on your work.
On Sunday it is Palm Sunday - the start of Holy Week. This is an important week in the Church's calendar.
Watch this video about Palm Sunday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7r2jaciG0g
Can you make your own palms and hang them on your door? - You could use branches and leaves from your garden or collect some on your walk. If you can't do that activity, how about writing down and decorating the word Hosanna?
Dan and Emily - who you may remember from our Lenten retreat day inschool - have produced a weekly worship which you might like to take part in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NL-kS4ZP6hs&feature=youtu.be
How are you getting on with your Maths?
Here are the answers to yesterday's Maths:
Have a lovely weekend, keep sharing your work!
Thursday 2nd April
Thank you Grace and Harley for having a go at using Purple Mash. Don't forget to save and hand in your work, so I can see and comment on it!
Today, I would like you to draw a map of the mouse's journey through the woods. Remember to include all the places mentioned in the story - listen to the Gruffalo story again to remind yourself of them all. Make a list as you listen to make sure you remember them all. You could include a key on your map to show which symbols/drawing you have used for each house.
Don't forget to share you work at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Answers for yesterday's maths:
Hope you are being good
Wednesday 1st April
Good Morning everyone.
Today as you listen or read along with the Gruffalo, see if you can identify the rhyming words . Make a list of words that rhyme and then see if you can add your own words to the list.
I have also set some 2dos on Purple Mash based on the Gruffalo - go to the red 2do folder and hopefully you will find them.
Try to use 2paint to paint a picture of the Gruffalo and use 2 create a story to make your own animated version of the Gruffalo - these can be handed in on Friday.
Here is a prayer for you to say with your family today:
A Prayer for your Household
Hear us, Lord, and send your Angel from heaven to visit and protect, to comfort and defend all who live in this house. Amen.
The answers to yesterday's maths are below:
Keep trying your best.

Friday 27th March
Well done everyone, the first week has nearly been completed!
It has felt like a long week and I am really missing all of you. It was lovely to see Harley sharing his work with us on Facebook and Twitter - I would love to see more of you sharing what you are doing - it would like me so happy and proud!
It has been lovely and sunny this week, reminding us that Spring is on the way. See if you can find out what the signs of Spring are - make a list. Then see if you can draw, paint or collage a lovely spring picture - please share them!
Be good children and have a lovely weekend.
Today's maths problem:
Thursday 26th March
I hope you are all keeping well still.
I have been reading on social media, among my own family and friends, that some people are becoming stressed out with trying to work from home and home school their children.
You didn't choose to home school and teachers didn't choose to have to teach from a distance - we are all just trying to do the best we can in a very difficult situation. I do not want any of you to feel under pressure to complete everything I send! They are ideas and suggestions, some people will have more time to spend with their children than others, depending on the nature of their work. Nobody is judging you!
Take the time you have with your child to enjoy them! if you don't do anything else just please find time to read together or listen to the many audio stories out there.
With this in mind I am not going to set a Maths problem today, I am giving you some ideas that will hopefully be fun and keep your children occupied.
Google 30 day Lego Challenge - see if your child can complete a challenge for the day - I can't share as it is copy righted, but ideas might be to build a space rocket, create a new roller coaster, build a castle for your favourite princess, build a tree house or a pirate ship. These activities are great for fine motor skills and for their creativity and imagination.
Follow this link, (you may need to paste into address bar) to some drawing ideas: https://www.facebook.com/100000038774743/posts/3093318694012726/?d=n
If your lucky enough to have a garden get outside in the sun - see if you can find minibeasts.
If you want to share any of your models or pictures please email them to - firstname.lastname@example.org. Again no pressure, it may just give the children a purpose and get them to spend longer on it, giving you more time to do what you need to do! I can make a gallery on this page to show off any photos I receive.
Stay Calm, Stay safe, Stay Inside!

Good Morning everyone,
Answers for yesterday
2 cylinders = 7kg
2 x 5 = 10, therefore times 7kg by the 5 to get the mass of 10 cylinders.
So - 7 x 5 = 35
10 cylinders = 35kg.
Dora spent £20 - this was half her money, therefore she also has £20 left.k started with £32
Jack must also have £20 left but he spent £12. Therefore to find out how much he started with add £12 and £20: 12=20 = 32.
Jack started with £32.
Here are your problems for today:
In school we have Catholic Virtues that we think about each half term. This half term our virtues are faith-filled and hopeful. Given the current situation I think these are really important.
Today children see if you can write a prayer of hope to God, Jesus or Mary.
The Pope has also asked everyone to join in the Lord's Prayer today at 11am.
Keep washing those hands!!
Tuesday 24th March
Good Morning, I hope everyone is keeping well.

If you have a bible at home try to find the story in the bible and read it yourself.
Try writing this story in your own words and try to explain what this story teaches us.

Good Morning everyone.
Today feels very strange and I already miss you all. I hope you are all keeping safe and you are in my prayers.
I will try to put things up on here regularly for you to do, please do not feel you have to do it all but try to do something to keep your brain ticking over.
Monday 23rd March
My son is currently doing PE with Joe on You Tube - this will be everyday at 9-9.30 during the week. It may help to keep your children active. My son is really enjoying it!
In school we follow Read Write Inc (RWI) for reading, spelling and writing. This is the phonic sheet that is stuck in your purple book. There are some good videos on You Tube to help you to understand RWI.
This link should take you to the right page https://www.youtube.com/
Year 1 - Miss Mattocks (Miss Green/Miss Grant/Mrs Raggert TA)
Welcome to Year One.
I would like to introduce myself. I am Mrs Mattocks and will be your child’s class teacher for this year. Miss Green & Miss Grant will also be working with us in Year One to support the children. If you have any problems through the year please come and speak to one of us.
We hope you find the information below useful:
These will be changed once a week. Your children will need books in school every day, as they will be called to read at other times. Please hear your child read at home every day and sign the reading record, so we know to change your child’s books.
This will be sent home on a Friday to be returned on Wednesday. All children will have an orange homework book. Please take care of these books and encourage your child to look after them. Please complete homework in pencil, with any colouring in, done in coloured pencils.
Children need P.E kits on a Thursday and Friday. We do try to do as much outside as possible, so when the weather gets cold, please send in warm clothing for P.E and not just shorts. Please put children’s NAMES on their clothing.
Please name your child’s uniform and P.E kits. I have already collected some items in my classroom with no name. If your child loses something, it is very difficult to find, when there is no name on it.
We are looking forward to a happy and successful year!
Mrs Mattocks, Miss Grant, Mrs Raggert & Miss Green.
