Remember to use Sumdog to practise your Maths. I am really pleased that some of you have been using it already. Keep up the good work.

Hello Year 1!
I hope that you are all well.
Did you play any April Fool's tricks on anyone in your family this morning?
I have just been for another walk with Mr. Cornley, Harrison and Woody. We saw 2 birds that I have never seen before. I came home and looked them up. One was called a jay and one was a wren. I have added photographs of them.
There is a really good app for practising your letter formation. It is called 'Blobble write'. Pleae ask your parents if they can get it for you so that you can keep practising forming the letters in the correct way.
I have been teaching Harrison and Mr. Cornley all about the Brainy Bunch. I remembered something that Gareth told us to help serotonin and endorphins and so everyday we are drawing and writing one thing that has made us happy.
Please can you do this in your books and you can show me them when we are back at school.
I have added links to songs that will help you with your tricky words.
Remember you need to be able to read and write the words.
Here is today's joke -
Q. What is red and smells like blue paint?
A. Red paint!
Take care and stay safe x
Thursday 2nd April
Hello Year 1!
How are you all today?
We have been out to walk Woody and I saw a bird that I have never seen before. It was running around the trunk of a tree and popping in and out of a hole. I have looked it up and it is called a nuthatch. I have added a photo of them to the bird photo album.
Your new task is to do a story map for 'The Smartest Giant in Town.'
Also, have you been doing any art work to put in your windows to say thank you to all the people who are still working, especially the NHS? Harrison and I are going to make a big sign. It would be brilliant if you can too. Ask your grown up to take a photo of it so that I can see it when you are back at school.
Well done to those of you that have been going on Sumdog regularly, you are superstars.
I am attaching another video to help with your Phase 5 phonics. I understand why we spell 'saw' with 'aw' not 'or' now! aw is another way of making the 'or' sound, like in claw, jaw, paw, draw.
Can you write a list of 'aw' words and then pick some to put into sentences.
Here is today's joke...
Doctor, doctor, my pet crocodile is sick.
Are you sure it's not an illigator??!
Missing you all.
Take care and stay safe x

Hi Year 1!
I can't believe that it is the last day of term and I have not been with you. I hope that you are all keeping well and are being good and working hard.
Keep looking after your brain too and using all the things that we have learnt about the Brainy Bunch. Make sure that you are getting enough sleep, going outside, exercising, drinking water and eating healthy foods. Remember to draw pictures of things that make you happy and if you can find a big enough stone, you could make your own memory stone.
It is going to be a very strange Easter holiday for us all this year. Harrison and I have made a list of things that we want to do so that we can still have a fun holiday. Maybe you can make a list with your families of things that you all can do at home or in the garden.
This is our list :-
baking Easter biscuits and cakes
making Easter cards and sending them to people that we can't be with
building a den (and maybe camping in it!)
watching a movie as a family, all snuggled up
reading lots of books
finding new places to walk
playing a family board game
planting some seeds
I can't wait to hear what you put on your lists and about all the lovely things that you have done with your family.
Enjoy those Easter eggs too.
Take care, stay safe,
Mrs. Cornley x
