What a scorcher of a week! The boys and girls in school have enjoyed the sunshine but have needed to drink plenty of water, wear hats and suncream and keep cool in the shade too. Hope you enjoyed the sunshine! Only three more weeks of home learning then officially you hit the summer holidays. Keep going families, you are doing a brilliant job! Like last week, I am going to post the websites but as always you can open up the word document which says Week Beginning 29th June, this outlines all the home learning for this coming week.

Monday 15th June

This week we are going to be celebrating the Queen's official birthday and thanking our dads on Father's Day on Sunday 21st June. Here's hoping this week the rain will ease and we will be able to continue learning and playing as much as possible in the outdoors. Our Redwood School Bubble began this week and we would like to say thank you to our families who followed the Health and Safey guide lines and a big thank you to the children who were amazing and very sensible. Sooooo....we are adding a new dimension to our Home Learning and this is especially for Y1 but Y2 you would benefit from this too. We are going to be doing daily phonic lessons via a YouTube channel based on Letters and Sounds. We have listed in our word document what lessons we would like you to do each day. Follow the link and then select the required lesson that we have scheduled for your child

Have a good week everyone and keep posting emails, photos and learning. It just makes our day!

Best Wishes

Hello to all our lovely families!

We just wanted to wish you a lovely, sunny half term and hope you are all okay. We will be posting more home learning on Monday 1st June.


Take Care Everyone

Monday 18th May

Hello Everyone,

Time is certainly flying by as we head into another week of home learning. We hope you are all well and making the most of these unusual times. Mrs Buckmaster and Mrs Kersey are missing you all, so thank you for your positive messages, it really means a lot to us.

As you look at the home learning this week, we wanted to highlight a couple of things that have changed.

Whiterose Maths

At present, the activity sheets linked to the videos are not available but please still do the video as there are many opportunities for you to pause and practice the mathematics. It is a fantastic resource and the models will be very familiar to your children. There are also links to BBC Bitesize that complement the learning.


We are adding some different reading and writing activities that can be recorded in their home learning books. There are some tasks the children can do independently but will need support at the beginning with reading the story.

Please if possible take time to do some of the activities, we are putting a lot out there, so there is plenty of choice for you. However, we are not expecting you to do it all but if you want to go for it!  Thank you.

Monday 11th May


Hello to all our lovely families. We hope you enjoyed commemorating VE day! Don't forget to send us any photos or emails about your home learning experiences. The weather has been glorious and we hope you have made the most of the sunshine. We are attaching home learning for this week below and it will follow a similar format each week. I just want to highlight the The Oxford Reading Owls website, where you can access on line levelled reading books. Please practice reading and if any of you are assigned to Reading Eggs (you know who you are!) we would like to encourage you to do this daily. It will make a big difference. Enjoy your week!


Best Wishes 


Mrs Kersey and Mrs Buckmaster

Monday 4th May

Hello to our families,

We hope you are all doing well and thank you for telling us about your adventures. After several weeks of home learning we are beginning to filter through many of the on-line resources and getting our head round this unique situation. Having discussed best websites with colleagues we are going to recommend the ones we would like you to use, as there has been so much help out there.


We are going to update our home learning page weekly and will enclose a word document outlining details for the home learning for that week. Please read through as this is where we will recommend the websites for your child’s learning. We hope this will be more useful and easily accessible for you.


We are also going to add a “Cracking Ideas Topic” page that focuses on the other foundation subjects that you might like to try with your child.


As always, we understand everyone is in a unique situation and we appreciate all that you are doing. But please be kind to yourselves, there are going to be good days and some bad ones. If there is one thing you can do, please read with your child. We now have access to levelled reading books on-line, which you will be able use with your child and all the information will be located on the home leaning word document. Have a wonderful week!

Monday 20th April

Hello Everyone! We are back and raring to go! We do hope you had a fantastic Easter Break and enjoyed much of the sunshine!

As always we have been busy preparing some home learning for you all. The home learning we have planned for is for the next two weeks. It is really important that you decide how much your child does but we are putting lots of activities out there for you with no expectation of having to do it all. However please keep reading and if you can, tackle some of the maths learning!  So here goes….

Morning All,

We hope you have had a restful weekend. We are going to upload another maths mat which you might want to try this week with your children. Don't forget to look out for Story Time with David Walliams. Don't forget to Blog on Purple Mash and post photos and share with your friends things you have been up to. Try to do the spelling dictation sentences. You do not need to print them out but just read the sentences to the children for them to write and practice their spellings.

Also we have set a new list of 2Do activities starting from today on Purple Mash. We are enjoying seeing their scores and results!


Year 2 - Please can you do Test 6 in your Maths and Reading SATs home learning books. Parents please can you check and mark, as the answers are in the back of the books.


Thursday 26th March

Dear All,

We have set up a class blog on Purple Mash so that your child can keep in contact with their class friends and us. All blogs will be read first by ourselves before they are posted.

To access the Year 1 or Year 2 class blog, logon to Purple Mash. Click on Sharing, then Shared Blogs. You will see Year 1 Class Blogs or Year 2 Chatterbugs. Click on this and you will be able to read any blogs which have been posted and approved by us. Your child can add their own blog for the teacher and class to see by clicking on the green + tab. A box will then appear where your child can add a fun title, summary and message. Remember to save the post! We look forward to  keeping in contact with your children. HAPPY BLOGGING!


It's been brilliant that some of you have been using Purple Mash and we can see all activities that you have been using from your 2DO list.

Not all the activities have an option for teachers to comment on but when we can, it will appear in your ALERT folder. We can see all your scores and results, so keep it up!


We will be uploading more Maths Activity Mats on Monday so remember to keep checking our class page!
