Remote Learning - Year 1

Hello and welcome to Year 1!

We miss you very much but during this time we do have opportunities where we can all learn together, these are our live lessons.  

In the classroom is myself (Mrs Moore), Mrs Randle and Miss Unitt.  The lessons will be taught by either myself or Miss Unitt and we always be live for English at 9:15am and Maths at 11am.  There is also a live lesson at 1:30pm on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Monday afternoon is our PE afternoon so you can complete a PE session at home or if you are in school you will need to wear your PE kit to school.

We are lucky to also have Ms Stainfield and Mrs Jones who are busy looking at all your lovely work on Google Classroom and enjoy writing comments to you about what you have done well and what you could do to be even better, I love looking at the work too!

Watch the video below to see what brilliant learning we are doing this term.

Each week, like the previous lock-down, we will contact you to check that everything is going well and to see if there is anything else we can do to help. Furthermore, we will be available through Google Classroom and Class Dojo to mark the children's work and answer questions. 

If children are self-isolating, they must still complete work daily following the timetable of their class and return work through Google Classroom, so that the teacher can give summary feedback about areas for improvement. 

If the year group bubble has to close, children will move to remote learning and continue to follow the timetable as much as possible.

Below is the remote learning timetable:
