Message from Mrs Roberts

Hi everyone,  

Hope you and your family are well.  How has your week been?  What have you learnt to do that you hadn't done before?   As I said in my last email I learnt how to make a swiss roll - it didn't turn out quite how it should but tasted lovely!  I did not give up trying to make something to roll and I made a 'roule' which is a cheese filled with garlic and herb and then rolled like a swiss roll.  I was glad I did not give up, as it looked just like the ones you buy in the shops.  What is the word beginning with R which means not giving up?  The answer is at the bottom. Also this week I've taken part in a zoom hula hooping lesson and had some lovely walks. 

I hope it won't be long before I see you all.

Mrs Roberts

Hi everyone!   Not long now before we will see some of you.  This week for me has been a  busy week, I was in school for three days and managed to spend a lot of time outside.  What home learning have I done since I last contacted you?  I've been doing a lot of reading about people who helped out King Henry VIII, a long time ago.  This week's baking was bakewell tarts and I plan to make a swiss roll this week.  I've taken part in lots of events on the computer, I've done quizzes with my family, chatted to friends, had a meeting and sung a song all with other people.  Look forward to seeing some of you soon, even if it is just to wave to!

Hello everyone!
How are you all doing?  We have been so lucky with such beautiful weather haven't we?  It was lovely to speak to so many of you last week and glad that you are doing well and like you we hope it won't be too long before we are back together.
We hope some of you managed to learn about VE day on Friday. Did you have a go at learning the dance called 'Lindy Hop'?  If you designed a medal to commemorate the end of the war in Europe what did you put on yours?
You have a lot of learning to choose from this week, the learning that we have put on as well as BBC daily bitesize and the online daily phonics which we would recommend you watch.
Take care and do ask an adult to send us the work that you have done, we would love to see them.

Hi Year One,
We hope that you are well.  It was lovely to speak to so many of you last week.  If you would like another chat, please ask a grown-up to call school and put in a request.  We will get back to you as soon as possible.
Has anyone been doing the lessons on Flotsam?  There are two more left.  I would love to receive some final pieces.
I hope that you enjoyed the learning from the BBC bitesize website.  We thought you would be able to access it more easily than other learning.  What was your favourite lesson?
Did you learn about Martin Luther King?  I thought that the fact that he spent his life trying to make life better for everyone is amazing.  Can you imagine if you couldn't be friends with someone because they have blue coloured eyes, how crazy would that be?  This was just the same.  
Did you remember anything from our previous learning on Judaism?  For example, Passover and the Sedar Plate.
Take care and remember to keep looking after each other.
Love from Mrs Fay and Mrs Roberts

Howdy, peeps!  It's been too long.  I really hope that you are well and are looking after your family.  I hope that you are making lots of memories and taking lots of photographs.  Your children and grandchildren will be asking you all about the time when we couldn't go out and had to stay two metres apart; strange times!


My family and I have been for a few bike rides and walks, we've been doing a bit of baking and a lot of gardening.  Now that we are in term time, I have to do more learning with my own children and continue planning some fun tasks for you guys!


Stay safe.

Love Mrs Fay


Hi everyone!

Firstly, thank you for sending me emails to let me know what you have been up to.  I have really enjoyed receiving them.  I hope you have managed to get out and enjoy it safely.  Last week I learnt how to do a story on YouTube and I have read another story for you to listen to.  All you need to do is click on the link -

As you know I find drawing and painting difficult so this week's learning I have tried hard to improve my skills.  I have painted a picture using watercolour.  I found it tricky but kept going and I got better. 

I have also learnt how to cut Mr Robert's hair this week - I've never done that before. It was quite a shock when I could see the hair falling to the floor!

I was in school last week and we made some super, colourful kites and then took them outside to try out.  They flew really well.

What have you learnt to do this week that you haven't done before?

Looking forward to more learning next week and letting you know what I have been up to.

Mrs Roberts

A ‘worry monster’ is a great opportunity for children to share any worries they may have during this time. Children can design their own worry monster and then tell their worries to it.

Hi Everyone!

How are you all?  Isn't the weather beautiful?  The deer in my garden haven't come back this week, however I have seen foxes and lots of squirrels.  As there are not many cars around at the moment I have been spending time listening to what I can hear.  So far there have been lots of different birds, even heard and saw a woodpecker in the grass.  If you have a garden or you get to go out why don't you have a listen to what you can hear.  When the sun has been too hot, I've started making a family tree - I've managed to find people related to me going back to 1730. That's nearly 300 years ago!  I have been in contact with Mrs Murphy and she is well and we both are thinking about you all.  Remember to send us an email and let us know what you have been up to

Take care

Mrs Roberts

Week beginning Monday 6th April


Hey, Otters!  Man, I'm missing you so much!  I was lucky enough to be in school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and saw a couple of Otters.  I can't wait until life goes back to normal; being a teacher for my own two children (Alistair and Mary) isn't as much fun as being your teacher.


Thank you to Catherine who sent me a video of her singing 'Three Little Birds', it was her own singing assembly. If you have something special you'd like to share, please send it to the office email ( who will send it on to me.


Don't forget to...


...and we'll be back before you know it!


Stay safe and well.  Love and hugs, Mrs Fay




Hello Rabbits!


This is really different isn't it.  I never thought I would be talking to you through the website.  

I thought I'd let you know what I've been up to.  I finished my new jigsaw puzzle, that took a long time as one of the pieces had fallen off and hidden itself in the carpet!  I have been watching two deer that have been turning up in our garden each evening and morning, we've never had that before so we are enjoying seeing them. I am trying to do Joe Wick's exercise when I can - have you  tried it yet?  I was in school last week and we made some lovely pictures and have got some more ideas for when I'm in next; I will let you know about them when I next write to you.  If you want to let me know what you have been up to you can email me at

Take care - stay well and be kind to the adults in your home.

I know it’s a hard time at the moment, but you’re doing amazing! You’re all wonderful in so many different ways, here is an activity to recognise all the positives in yourselves. After you’ve completed it about yourself, why not complete it on a member of your family too? I’m sure it would put a big smile on their face.

Enjoy this KS1 Music lesson 25.3.20


Welcome back!  We hope that you had a wonderful half term break.

Our topic enquiry question is…

Is there a perfect Animal?

We will be launching our topic with a scavenger hunt; looking for animals and plants in the local environment.  Don’t forget the wellies!

In this topic we will be looking at animals in different subjects, particularly in English.  This also links to Geography, where we will be studying maps and globes.

Science is linked to Materials.  We will be looking at properties and testing elements to find good materials for making animal toys.

Art will be linked to nature but we will be looking at the work of Andy Goldsworthy (an artist who uses the outdoors as his inspiration).

Computing will be focused on painting skills and creating an e-book.  We will be using a paint program.  The project is called ‘We are Painters’.

Our R.E. concept is ’welcoming’ and we will be studying the Christian celebration of Palm Sunday.

Our landing will be an Animal Catwalk of our toys.  Parents will be invited to see the recorded event.

Our PE days are Mondays and Tuesday/Wednesdays.  Please ensure that your child has a named kit in school for these days.  PE kits should have dark shorts, a maroon t-shirt and well-fitting plimsolls.

We believe that communication between home and school is crucial.  If you have any concerns or wish to share something sensitive with us, we are happy to find time and space to do this.  Please do not hesitate to catch us after school for a quick chat or arrange a time with us or the school office if you’d like to speak privately.

Year 1 have been learning about the story of Passover.


We thought about how we remember important events. We tasted the food from the Seder plate.



In science, as part of our Great Fire of London topic, Year 1 have been learning about materials.  We did two different experiments to see how strong and how absorbent the materials were and which would be best to build houses.

Our families joined us for an afternoon to make houses that we would have seen in 1666.





Year 1 identified appropriate places for a peace garden in their playground. The Year 1 children practiced creating a plan by using doll house furniture to create a bedroom plan.

Look at what Year 1 have been learning
