Our Year 1 Animal Project - Enjoy

We hope you have fun learning about animals over the next few weeks. We have added some ideas for you to explore learning about our first focus animal - the orangutan.


If you would prefer to look at another animal or do some different activities - that is OK too! Just remember to tweet and e-mail what you have been doing so you can be entered into the competition for the most engaged learner!


Keep checking Twitter for some more ideas and to see what the rest of year 1 have been doing.








Welcome Back!

We hope you and your family are keeping well and had an enjoyable half term. As part of our plans to support remote teaching and learning, we wanted to let you know we are now using resources from Oak National Academy. The way that you access these lessons will be the same as before. Each day go into the daily rainbow and the lessons that Year 1 Teachers have selected will be there.


What is Oak National Academy?

Oak National Academy is an online classroom that has been created by teachers specifically to support pupils learning at home. It is backed by the Department for Education.


How are lessons taught?

Each lesson is delivered by a trained teacher, with a pre-recorded video, and it is made very clear at the start of each session anything you might need (such as pens, paper etc). The lessons are designed to need minimal supervision. Each lesson can be paused and rewound to help pupils learn at their own pace.  The lessons include quizzes, worksheets and creative activities to engage your child.


How do I share my child's work with a teacher?

Take a screen shot of your child's work or a photo of your child working and email it or share it on Twitter


On-line Assembly

Each Thursday at 11 am Oak Academy hold and online assembly. These provide opportunities to hear form some inspirational guest speakers, including the first British astronaut, the cast of the Lion King and the Archbishop of Canterbury. You will find links to these assemblies in Thursday's rainbows.


Oak Activity Club

Some days with feature activities from the Activity Club. These activities will hopefully keep your child active and engaged. The activities feature cook-a-longs, debating and arts activities.




If you need any help/support with your child's learning or have any questions. Please email me at:
