Welcome to Class 1!



Monday 6th July 2020


Dear Class 1, 


How are you all? I have had some lovely emails with some amazing Dinosaur work. I hope that you enjoyed it as much as I did! I am sure that you're all starting to get quite tired and fed up of the home learning now, but please keep going - we are very nearly at the summer holidays and you have all done such an amazing job of adjusting to this new way of learning! Just two weeks left to go. 


The theme for this week's home learning is Robots - I'd love to see pictures of any creations that you manage to make this week, if you send it to me before Thursday I can add it to the newsletter. 


I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. 


Love Miss Aldridge xx

Dear Class 1, 


How are you? I hope you enjoyed the sunshine last week. I had my operation on my leg on Monday and I now have a plate and 14 screws in my leg. I am feeling so much better. A massive thank you for all of the lovely emails and cards that I have received. I am missing you all so much and I cannot wait for us all to be together in September. 


I have really enjoyed seeing what you have been learning this week. You have all worked incredibly hard on the human body with some very creative ideas. Again, you are all doing such an amazing job in these unusual times. I know that all of the children that are in school have enjoyed themselves and are working hard. 


This weeks theme is Dinosaurs. I hope that you have a great week. Please email me some photos and what you have been up to on our class email

Hello Class 1, 


I hope you are all well. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful emails, it has definitely cheered me up! I also hope that you're managing to get some fresh air, as this is very good for both our physical and mental health. The weather forecast for this week is looking good so hopefully you'll be able to enjoy some sunshine. 


I am really missing everyone, I did manage to pop into school this week and see some of the children that were in, it was lovely to see everyone. I cannot believe how grown up everyone has become.  Please continue to send me through your work and pictures of what you have been up to, I enjoy looking at them.  


The home learning theme this week is the human body; I hope you enjoy finding out about how our bodies function. The maths, reading and spelling can also be found below. 


I hope you all have a lovely week! 

Speak to you soon, 

Love Miss Aldridge x

Monday 15th June 2020


Hello Class 1, 


I hope you are all well and that you have had a lovely weekend!


It has been a busy week, I have loved being at school and seeing some of you. I have really enjoyed seeing what you have achieved at home too! You have all worked really hard on the Oceans theme. This week, the theme for our home learning is farming. Lots of teachers and children within our federation are either live on a farm or own farm animals so we thought it was a very appropriate topic. What is your favourite farm animal? 


I have had a very interesting weekend and unfortunately I managed to break my leg in 3 places and dislocate my ankle, so I wont be in school for the next couple of weeks, but I will be on email and I would love to see how you are getting on at school and with your home learning. Please do get in touch if you need support with anything or just a chat. 


Stay safe, 


Miss Aldridge x

Monday 8th June 2020


Hello Class 1, 


I hope you are all well, what have you been up to this week? I am looking forward to welcoming those that are coming back to school. Please don't worry if you are not able to because we will still keep updating this page and also you can continue to share your news with me through our class email  I will still love to hear from you and remember it does not need to be work related!!


This week the theme is Oceans. I have uploaded the normal PowerPoints. Please remember to do what is best for you and your family. I am completely aware that parents are working from home and that home schooling is very different for the children. You are all doing an amazing job in these uncertain times. 


I look forward to receiving all of your emails this week. 


Stay safe and keep smiling, 


Love Miss Aldridge smiley




Monday 1st June 2020


Dear Class 1, 


I hope that you have all had a relaxing half term enjoying the sunshine. What have you been up to? I have spent my week going on lots of walks, enjoying the sunshine in my garden and lots of gardening. Can you believe that we are entering June already! Where has the time gone?


As usual, I have added the PowerPoints and the theme for this week is Space. I am excited to see what you produce this week. Please only do what is right for you and your family. If you have any questions please email me. 


I hope that you are all well, keep smiling and stay safe, 


Love Miss Aldridge x

Monday 25th May 2020


Dear Class 1, 


I am so proud of every single one of you for all of your effort and determination during this strange time, but you have made it to half term! This means that I will not be setting any work for this week and I would like you all to enjoy your well earned break. I have loved seeing all of your emails this week about the jungle topic! Everyone has done an amazing job and put a lot of thought and effort in, so well done. I will put some picture on this page to share with you all. 


I loved this week of lock down, as it was the first time that I got to see so many of you on Zoom! It was so lovely to see your smiley faces and what you have all been up to. I hope we can do this again in the future. 


Finally, I really want you to have an amazing week off! I would still love to hear what you get up to, so please take lots of pictures, remember to rest and I will speak to you again on the 1st June. 


Stay safe, have fun and keep smiling, 


Love Miss Aldridge xx

Hello Class 1, 


How are you? I am missing you a huge amount but I am looking forward to seeing some of you on Zoom tomorrow at 10am. Please don't worry if you are unable to attend we will do another one in a couple of weeks time. I hope that you've all been enjoying some sunshine.  It's been lovely to hear about what some of you have been up to in your emails. Please continue to send them in. 


Congratulations to Damien for winning the KS1 competition for VE day! Mrs Baker was very impressed with your cake and tank. A big well done to Lily-Mae for getting back to the top of the leader board for Numbots. Who will be this weeks leader?


Thank you Louise and Rebecca for your wonderful sports PowerPoints, I have learnt lots about horses and ballet. Thomas, I loved that you dressed up as a superhero. Ruben, you have completed lots of amazing work this week; keep up the great work. Zelah, you clearly put a lot of thought into your hero, well done. I really enjoyed seeing all of the work from Lily-Mae and Bryony. You are all working so hard, so thank you for that. I do hope that you are having fun too!


The theme for this week's learning is the jungle - I hope you enjoy it. I have also attached the usual weekly PowerPoints below. Please remember to only do what is manageable for you and not to worry if anything is a little tricky! Learning at home is very different to being at school.


I hope you have a lovely week and if you need anything please email me on

Stay safe, 

Love Miss Aldridge x

 Hello Class 1, 


How are you all? I have loved seeing all of your VE day entries, they were very special. Did you have a good bank holiday Friday? What did you get up to? I had a BBQ and a cream tea in the garden making the most of the lovely weather we are having, it was very yummy! I haven't been up to much this week, however, I have been writing your reports. 

I have loved seeing all your emails. I have had lots of lovely pictures from Rebecca and Louise who have been very busy with their VE day entries, James and Annabelle who have been busy with all of the animals that they need to look after;Thomas who has now got a very cool hair cut and Molly who has decided to put a very pretty braid in her hair for every week we stay in lock down! There has been so many emails with everyone's amazing work, you are all doing so well. I hope you are counting your merits up!


This week, the theme is 'superheros'. I hope that you have lots of fun and I can not wait to see all of your emails, remember it doesn't need to be work related,


I am looking forward to seeing what you get will get up to this week. 


I am missing you all so much, stay safe, have fun and speak to you soon, 


Love Miss Aldridge x



Monday 4th May 2020


Dear Class 1, 


How is it May already? It feels so long since I have seen your smiley faces and heard your cheeky laughs. I am missing you all terribly, however, I have loved receiving all of your emails with lovely photos, videos and amazing messages. It looks like you have all been having a really great time with your families during this difficult time. I am really proud of every single one of you for everything that you are doing at home, whether that is the PowerPoints or baking or planting in your garden. Remember to only do the work that is right for you and your family, stay safe and happy and we can catch up with everything when we go back to school. 


Everyday, I have continued to walk my lovely dogs, go for a run and made some white chocolate and raspberry muffins, they were delicious! What have you been doing? Please continue to send in your lovely messages to as it really does make my day!


This week, I have added the PowerPoint with Maths, Reading, Phonics and Spelling. The theme this week is Sport, I am sure that you will have lots of fun completing these tasks. Remember, if you are finding things really tricky you are more than welcome to use the previous year groups PowerPoint. 


Don't forget our VE Day competition - If you want to enter, all you need to do is look at the ideas on the slides, pick one or one of your own to complete and send it to me via email by Thursday 7th May. All the entries will be compiled into a video to celebrate VE day. The video will be shared with you and winners announced on Friday 8th May. You will be able to see this via the Moorsway Federation Facebook page, website and the Moorsway newsletter (see PowerPoint below). 


Numbots - All of you are doing so well on numbots and I have loads of certificates to give out when we go back to school, I wonder who will make the leader board this week?


Reading Online Library - Renaissance Learning have made access to their e-book library free for children at home. You can access these books on a tablet or laptop and they have over 6000 books to choose from, so that should keep you keen readers entertained! Here is the link:


Have an amazing week, keep smiling, stay safe and be happy,

Dear Class 1, 


I hope you have had a great week. I have been on many dog walks across the moors, cooking brownies and I have made chocolate eclairs successfully. I have really enjoyed the sunshine in my garden and we have had our first BBQ of the year! Chocolate and Squiggles are really enjoying themselves in my garden, they love all of the vegetable peelings when we have a roast! 


However, the highlight of my week has been receiving all of the lovely emails from you. I have loved seeing what everyone has been doing and how much you have all grown! It really makes my day seeing your smiley faces as I miss you all so much! Congratulations to Lily-Mae for being on the Numbots leader board for the second week running. I wonder if anyone can beat her...


I have uploaded some home learning ideas for you. The maths, phonics, spelling and reading is on a PowerPoint and the theme for the other planning is 'Mythical Creatures'. Please remember that you need to choose the activities that suit you and your family. I would love you to continue emailing me on (it does not need to be work related) and I will reply as soon as I can. 


I hope that all of your families are well, stay safe and continue to be amazing as always, 


Love Miss Aldridge xx



Monday 20th April 2020


Hello Class 1, 


How are you? I am really missing seeing all of your smiley faces everyday! This week, I have been baking cheesecake, brownies and eating lots of chocolate (Oops). I have been on many dog walks and I have started running! What have you been up to?


I just want to say a you are all doing an amazing job with your home schooling, that includes you parents. I have loved seeing your fantastic rainbows on facebook. Louise and Rebecca, your rainbow poster for the NHS was beautiful. Congratulations to Lily-mae for making the Numbots leader board this week! I have loved seeing all of the work that has been emailed to me or uploaded to tapestry. I am so proud of every single one of you for coping so well in this uncertain time. I hope that you are enjoying yourselves and spending quality time with you family. 


I have uploaded some home learning ideas that are in the similar style to last weeks learning. This weeks theme is Pirates! Please remember that I do not expect you to do all of the tasks, or spend ages on the tasks that you have chosen. You need to do what is right for you and your family. Don't forget that you can now email me on and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 


I am look forward to seeing what you will get up to this week. 


Stay safe, be happy and enjoy time as a family. 


Lots of love 


Miss Aldridge xx

Hello Class 1, 


I hope you have all had a lovely Easter holiday making memories with your family - and hopefully eating lots of chocolate! The Easter bunny came to my house yesterday and hid lots of chocolate eggs for me to find! I have been walking my lovely dogs, giving lots of cuddles to Chocolate and Squiggles who have been loving the grass on my front lawn and enjoying this lovely weather in my garden. 


The time has come where we would usually be returning to school tomorrow but due to lock down this will not be happening. I am missing you so much and I can't wait to see all of your lovely smiling faces again when this very strange time is over. Please continue to share anything you get up to on the Moorsway Facebook page if you can as it really does make my day! You can also email anything to our admin and they will forward it on to me. Thank you, Lucy, Jacob and Bryony for some amazing writing, it all made me smile, so thank you for that. Foundation children, remember you can upload anything to Tapestry for me to see.


Every Monday, I will set you some work that will be in a very similar format. You will be given a PowerPoint that will have a maths, spelling, phonics and reading task for you to do each day; these are only short, snappy tasks as I know that learning at home is very different than being in school. 

Each week, I will also upload a Word document that will have suggested activities for English, Science, Topic (History, Geography, RE) and Art/DT. There will be 5 suggested activities for each subject that you could do each day IF you wish; however, you may choose to only do 2 from a certain subject and then three from another each week, and that's fine too! You can choose which activities you do and when/ if you do them at all. Please don't feel that you have to do all of them, this is just lots of suggestions!


Just remember to have fun, stay happy and healthy and look after yourself!


Please do send an email if you need anything at all - Mrs Jarvis will forward it to me and you shall receive a reply from me as soon as possible. The email address, in case you are unsure, is 


Stay safe, healthy and happy.  

Love Miss Aldridge x

Easter Holidays!


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! 

Miss Aldridge

Easter Activities

Home Learning 


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 smiley 


Miss Aldridge

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. 

Class 1
Year 2
Year 1

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. smiley

Class Letter- Autumn 19

Forest school:


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! smiley

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 .......

Autumn 2019:


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. 

In Maths we have been learning about place value. We have been counting in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s, looking at how to write numbers, finding out how many ones and tens a number is made up of and exploring different representation of a number. The children have been really engaged and learnt lots over the past few weeks.
