This week we will show you a picture of something familiar.  We will start with a very close image.

  • Look at today’s picture -What do you think the image is and why?
  • What does the image remind you of and why?

 

Image 1 - Tuesday 

Each day this week we will slowly zoom out. When you see each image can you -  

  • Describe the colours, shapes and textures?
  • Think what the image is and if you have changed your mind?

Image 2 - Wednesday

Here's Mrs Campbell reading Detective Dog by Julia Donaldson.

Hello  Discovery/Voyager class
I hope that you are all keeping safe and well.
I miss seeing your smiley, happy faces, but I have really enjoyed seeing all the lovely work that you have been doing at home. Keep up the good work!
I have been keeping myself busy too. When I’m not at school working at breakfast and after school club, I spend lots of time helping my son with his schoolwork. My daughter and I have been making lots of delicious cakes, which I have eaten far too much of!  I 
have been on lots of lovely walks around the village and have been lucky enough to see some of you. I have also been doing lots of jigsaw puzzles, exercise and have recently started learning Spanish. Hopefully, I’ll be able to share some of what I’ve learnt with you when I see you next.
I’m looking forward to seeing more photos of you all whether it’s doing a great piece of work, learning a new skill or just simply having fun!
Take care everyone, see you all soon.
Mrs Bounds

Hello from Mrs Hargreaves!  Mrs Hargreaves said, 'This is a picture of me with some of the artwork I’ve been doing. As well as lots of painting and doing jigsaws I have been reading every day, exercising, and baking. I send my love to all in Voyager and Discovery classes and hope that you are all well and happy...'

Please email us weekly to let us know how
you’re doing because we miss you all - one email to the class email address a week would be great from everyone.

We want to hear from you to know that you
are all ok. If we haven’t had any contact from you via email or we can’t see that children have logged in online, we may call
you. This is not checking up on you - it is genuine concern.  This is also because we have an obligation to ensure that you are all ok.

Thank you year 1!  

We are absolutely blown away with your lovely messages this morning – what a beautiful way for us to start our days!  Seeing your smiling faces and hearing your messages has touched us so, so much.  We can’t thank you enough for being so thoughtful.  We are missing you all so much and can’t wait to get back to school and see you all again.  Please thank all of your grown ups for the effort they have gone to in making this fabulous video. 

Have a super day.

Love From Mrs Campbell and Mrs Imeson  x

Look at Year 1 shining brightly!  

Rafe is shining brightly learning to ride his bike!  Well done Rafe! 

Here's Molly shining brightly, learning to ride her bike without stabilisers too!  Well done Molly!

Here's Freya shining brightly riding her bike too! 

Well done Freya!

Well done to Matthew, he has learned to ride his bike too! 

Well done William!

He has also learnt how to ride his bike without stabilisers!  

We are so proud of Jazzy for shining very brightly.  She watched the videos of her classmates riding their bikes and was spurred on to learn herself. She’s been really determined and has persevered to achieve her goal.  

Have a look at Matthew's Space project below.  So many ways you are shining brightly here Matthew!

Amoree is cooling down in her pool.

Here's Amoree teaching us all some dance!

William's super obstacle course - doesn't it look fun!  William also shone brightly by making the course simpler for his brother - how kind.    

Find out about 'Toys - Now and Then' by reading this excellent project.   

Watch William make a fruit cake.  

Can you follow the recipe and make one too? 

Or could you send a recipe recommendation in?

Your task is to create a coat of arms to represent you or your family.  Click the link to get more information about coats of arms.
