Home Learning

Hello Class R

I hope that you had a lovely weekend.

I hope that you enjoyed your learning last week. I will continue to put the daily learning on the blog this week just in case we have a hiccup with Google Classroom!

I have attached a weekly plan and some more activities in case you get bored! I will also attach a list of useful TV and website links that you may find helpful. have daily lessons from 9:00am – 12:00pm  (including links to CBeebies and BBC Bitsize).

I have signed you up to Oxford Owl E-book library to help with your reading at home. There are banded books on here that link with the coloured band that you read at school as well as some story telling videos. There are over 500 books, so it would be fantastic if you could use these to help you read everyday.                                                                                                                                    

Here are your log in details:

 I have attached a letter from Oxford Owl that explains a bit more.

Resources that you need for this week include:                                                                          

your purple book (to do all of your work in), pencil, card or cardboard boxes (to make a dice and a bed for a teddy), different size containers for water play, porridge (optional), plain flour and salt to make salt dough.

I look forward to seeing you all on Google Meet (hopefully)!


We had a fantastic end to the term, involving lots of fun. We decorated some yummy Christmas biscuits and enjoyed our Christmas party. The children were brilliant with their singing in the live carol service and we absolutely loved seeing Father Christmas, who kindly came to school to say Happy Christmas to the children and to leave them with a class christmas present.

Can I say on behalf of the team a really big and heartfelt THANK YOU for our wonderful Christmas cards and the fantastic Christmas video that the children made. I can honestly say that a few tears were shed! A fantastic idea.

I hope that you all had and are having a lovely Christmas and that all of you are healthy and safe.

Enjoying our party games.
We were very excited to see Father Christmas.
So was Mrs Homan!

We have had a lovely week in Class R. We have been learning all about the Christmas story and making story maps about it. We have made some fantastic Christmas cards (prepare to be impressed!) and decorations, all of which will be coming your way. The children also recorded the chorus of Love Shone Down, which will be part of a school compilation, which was beautiful.

Next week we carry on with our Christmas theme with lots more exciting activities planned.

A huge thank you to all parents and children who were involved in the FPS fundraising challenge – what an amazing amount you managed to raise!

Our Learner of the Week this week is Myles, for fantastic reading. Well done, Myles.
