w/c 18th May

Hello everyone in Year One

We hope you are all keeping happy, safe and busy have managed to complete some of the home learning activities this week - did you have a go at the weekly Facebook challenge?  We posted a message for you all, we hope you saw it!  Keep checking every Monday for a new challenge. 

Have you watched the video message from all of the Wharton staff?

I have watched it lots of times - it cheers me up seeing all the grown ups at school we haven't seen for two months, and also lots of pets!  

There are lots of new suggestions for home learning activities in the "Year One Home Learning WC 18.5.20" file at the bottom of this page, plus English and Maths activities for this week. Click on the tabs at the top of the page for all the extra resources you will need.  There are some great Maths activities to enjoy outside in your garden too, but remember that you will need to protect yourselves from the sunshine which has been forecast for this week so don't forget the sun cream, sun hats and lots of drinking water.

Try to read and practise your phonics every day too - you can click on the link below for short, daily phonics lessons.

Please do send photos of any activities you have enjoyed to Mr Bell at and he can upload them to our Facebook page.  We miss you all so it is lovely to see what you have been doing at home.  

If at any point you need to contact the school you can call the main number or email:

Keep happy, keep busy and keep safe!

Mrs Wilson is Pear Class teacher and Mrs Neate is Apple Class teacher.  Mrs Naisbitt is our Teaching Assistant and will be working with both classes.

In Year One we learn through practical, creative play using the indoor and outdoor spaces. We look forward to a happy year where our children achieve their very best.

Our PE day is Wednesday and this term we will be taking part in indoor PE, so you will need  a white t-shirt and black or navy blue shorts.  You may wear PE pumps if you wish.  It is best to keep these in school - we will send them home at half-term.  Thank you.

The doors open at 8.40am and we finish at 3.00pm.
