Learning to be the best that we can be with the love of God

Monday 20th April 2020

Hello Key Stage 1,

We hope you all had a lovely Easter!

For daily challenges and work from now on please see your class teacher's class dojo message and refer to your own class pages. For now, there will be no more daily challenges put up here. You can send your work through to the email address or to make it quicker and easier for your class teacher to see it, send through Class Dojo.

We've loved everyone's responses to the challenges, well done for staying focused.


Hello KS1. From all your teachers and teaching assistants in KS1 we want to wish you a 'Happy Easter.' Please stay safe and don't eat too many chocolate eggs! We will speak with you again soon. In the meantime, be kind to each other and know we are thinking of you all.x

P.S. In case you are bored I've attached some nice Easter activities for you to complete. You can post them on your Dojo page. We hope you enjoy them. Mrs Ellis

Terrific Thursday

Today is spelling. Please use the download from last Thursday (on this page) and practice your spelling. Remember: Do 5 at a time and only move on when you can spell them correctly and fluently. I challenge you to learn them in different ways. Try some ideas from last week like Summer who chalked them in the sun. Can you keep fit to them or design a dance to them? Be inventive and send your scores. Also, send your work, pictures and videos to share your learning. We look forward to hearing from you.

April Fools Day

We need some fun during these times.

 As well as Wednesday's challenge why not have some fun learning with the links below. They're all English based and as a treat there's some mindfulness  colouring sheets when you've done some work.

Happy writing.

 Good morning everyone. I hope you've had a lovely weekend and enjoyed some sunshine.

Your English today  is to find a favourite book and read it. Take a picture of you reading and your completed reading record.

Thursday Challenge Y1 and Y2 

Good morning KS1 here is your challenge for today - It's spelling. Practice the spellings from the list. Start with the first 5 and when you have mastered them do another 5 and so on. Don't move on until you can spell them fluently. Your teacher will be so proud when school opens if you can spell them all correctly. This work can be done throughout the closure. Keep returning to them even if you've got them all correct. Haaapy spelling! You can trace them in the air, on the back of your parent, use chalk in the garden, draw them, paint them, use playdough etc. HOW CREATIVE CAN YOU BE. SHARE YOUR LEARNING WITH US.

 Sorry to Y1 parents. I had my Y2 hat on and this is all very new. I am learning as well.

Above is some english for today. In future I will put on Y1 and Y2 work. My apologies again.

Tuesday Challenge

Look at the picture below and write an adventure story.

Introduction - Who are the characters and where are they? Describe them.

Middle - The action - What happens and why - make it exciting.

End - How is it solved and how does it end?

CHECK: Have you used the following?

  • Capitals and full stops
  • !    ?     ,    ''  ''       
  • Expanded noun phrases - The young girls bravely heaved heavy sacks of dirty coal......
  • Interesting adjectives and verbs
  • Y2E -Remember:Pie Corbett openers and conjunctions. 

Here is your starter. Change it and 'magpie' my ideas.

Early one morning on a cold winter day two young girls set off to work.  Like any other day they  walked down the cobbled street past the rows of neat terraced houses to the menacing mine. It stood on a steep hill above the small village of Month. Katie was the oldest and at ten years old she already had a stoop from all the enormous sacks of filthy coal that she carried. Mina was three years younger and was slightly built. Her face always looked sooty even after a warm bath in the tub beside the fire. Both girls walked slowly and talked about the long shift ahead. It would be gruelling! 

''Are you looking forward to it?'' asked Katie with a look of sadness in her eyes,

''No,not really as my legs still ache from yesterday.'' replied Mina.

As they entered the mine shaft..........

Suddenly ...........

After that.......

Later on.........

When it was finally over..........
