Supporting Families With Covid 19 (Coronavirus)
We recognise that many families will need support with self isolation. On this page and using the tabs below for home learning links and your child's class tab we hope to provide your child with lots of learning links and ideas.
We have also added a poster with 25 ideas to have fun at home without screen time.
We also want to ensure that families and children are looking after their well-being. Link below takes you to our advice and links page for mental health and well-being:
If we have to close, please visit your child's class page and check regularly for updates and messages. These pages will be updated on a regular basis. Please check them to support your child's learning at home.
If parents or children would like to email in to their teachers any activities or new skills they have learnt during this time, you can now send any pictures or messages to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can share your activities on your year group page. Please let us know in your email if you give your permission for the photos to appear on our website. You can find your photos on the 'What Have Year EYFS Been Up To?' tab.
Here are some useful sites to boost learning at home.
Remember to exercise every day
Joe Wicks is putting together some daily videos to keep you active while you are off school. It is important to try and exercise everyday as this is good for your body and your mind.
Daily English lessons with Jane Considine.
Jane Considine is putting together some super stacking English lessons for children of all ages to access from home. All you will need is a pen and paper and log onto her live webinar each day from Monday morning at 9:45am for the Film focus of the day and at 10:30am she will give you your writing task.
Free online books for all children to listen to.
Starting today, children everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being children. All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.

This week in F1 we have been looking after snails. We have been making sure that they are kept nice and warm and giving them lots of leaves to eat. We have been looking at the work of Matisse and have been making our own snail trails and patterns.
World Book Day
The children (and teachers) have all come dressed as such wonderful characters today.
We have talked about our characters and enjoyed listening to the teachers read their favourite stories to us. It has been great to hear all about the different stories we have chosen.
Live Reading of Thomas the Tank Engine
To help us all learn how to be safe on the rails, we had a very special live reading of a story of Thomas the Tank Engine, which schools from around the country all watched. The children all enjoyed the story.
Luna New Year
This week Foundation 1 have been celebrating Chinese New Year. This year is the year of the rat and we have so many activities to celebrate this! We have been pracitising our chinese letter writing, making dragon puppets, creating our own chinese dragon dance and we have even had a Chinese feast - yummy noodles and delicious prawn crackers! We have had so much fun celebrating!

17.01.2020 This week some of Foundation 1 visted Mariners Park Nursing Home. We were able to join in on the residents kiddlydivey session which is all about music and movements. The residents used scarves and movement to follow the music and we did too! Afterwards we had a delicious picnic and the residents wanted to join in so we all sat in a circle and ate our yummy lunch. We already cant wait to go back!
