Welcome to Class 1!
Dear Parents and Class 1,
Firstly, a massive well done to all of you for surviving your first week of home learning. I have enjoyed seeing all of your learning online, please keep posting as I love seeing what you are all up to. Lucy and Bryony, I really enjoyed your writing, Louise and Rebecca your Easter biscuits looked really yummy, Freya your homemade bread looks delicious, Ruben and Alex your rainbows were beautiful, Damien and Jacob fantastic effort in PE with Joe Wicks and amazing work from everyone using Numbots and Timetable Rock Stars, after Easter I will announce the top 3 in our class! We all love seeing what you have been up to (work related or not!) so feel free to post photos on our Moorsway Federation Facebook page.
I have been busy moving our Guinea Pigs, Chocolate and Squiggles to my front garden where they are loving the sun and grass! My dogs, Coco and Dottie have loved me being at home in the garden. We have been cutting the grass and tidying the shed, it is amazing what you can find!
Today is actually the start of the Easter Holidays and you have all worked exceptionally hard during this term. You deserve to have a break from learning over the next two weeks, I will not be setting any home learning now until after Easter, however, I have put a couple of ideas of some fun activities to do over Easter.
I am missing all of you so much, look after yourselves, stay safe, have fun and be good for your parents!
Love to you all!
Dear Parents and the lovely Class 1,
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend and have managed to get some fresh air. It is nice to see some sunshine. I have been enjoying the weather in my garden with my two dogs, Coco and Dottie! It is rather strange thinking that I am not going to see you all tomorrow. I have uploaded a few ideas for your home learning this week. Please do not worry about not completing all of the work, just try and fit it in where you can. I have tried to link it with the topics that we have been learning this term.
Please check this page regularly as I will upload new suggestions of things to work on, as well as general updates whenever possible. Please also keep an eye on our Moorsway Federation Facebook page for fun ideas to fill the day, as well as remembering to go outside and get some fresh air!
You will need to open the document below to see the ideas.
Keep safe and be positive, I can't wait to see you all when school is back open
Our Class Structure:
We are currently a mixed KS1 class lead by Miss Aldridge. We have three TAs that help us with our learning: Mrs Williams, Mrs Atkins and Mrs Thomas.
Our new outdoor area:
Our fantastic PTA raised over £21,000 to revamp our outdoor learning area! The children love the new space! Thank you to everyone that contributed in anyway.
Wow! Our first two forest school sessions have certainly been exciting. We have created dens, made potions, climbed trees, played a game of animal alliteration and grouped different animals that we found.
Our Amazing Garden Area:
Class 1 have been exploring the garden and pond areas. We have looked at all of the different fruit and vegetables that we have planted, admired the bug hotel bench, read all of the facts in the information shelter and observed the Wormery. We have picked apples and rhubarb and prepared crumple to take home to our families. It was very yummy!
Our First School Trip:
Class 1 went on their first school trip to the Rare Breeds Centre. We started the trip at Buckfastleigh where we caught the steam train to the Rare Breed Centre. The children had a fantastic time looking, feeding and holding lots of different animals. Have a look at what we got up to .......
In English we started with a fiction text 'The Train Ride' by June Crebbin where the children have acted out the story with memorable actions and used a props to deepen their recall of the story. They have drawn a story map, planned and written their own patterned text about a journey.
