Outdoor Learning

We have been looking at plant identification through leaves and seeds. In particular we have looked at acorns and blackberries. 

We made purple paint with blackberries and made green paint with leaves to paint our flowers. Flowers are another way to identify plants.

Our Letters and Pictures

We have been working alongside Windermere Health Centre to write letters to people in our community who may be feeling lonely and missing loved ones at this time. We hope that our letters and pictures will make them smile.

Hello Everybody!

Wellness Week - w/b 22/6/20


We are going to do things a little differently this week. With all that is going on I feel that it is important  to remember the children's emotional well being. I would like to focus on the children's well being this week. Please find below a selection of activities for you and your child to choose from. Please look through the activities and decide with your child which activities you would like to do together. I also realise how important friendship is at this time  and that the children will be missing each other. So if the children would like to draw or write a message to the rest of the class, you can scan or take a photo of it and e mail it to me at  . I will then put these on our class page on the school website so that we can all see each other's drawings and messages. Have a lovely week and enjoy the activities.

Hello again everyone!

I hope that you've all had a lovely half term week and are managing to enjoy the sunshine. I am going to start adding work on a weekly basis to further support your learning at home. The work will be there for you at the beginning of each new week. There will be Maths and English work for you to have a go at each day. Try and do at least some of it each day as it will really help you when you come back to school. You're all doing so well! smiley

Work for week beginning 1/6/20

Hello everyone,

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. I have added some new activities for you to try. As with all the work that has been set there is no pressure to do all of the activities, just do what you can manage. There are three sets of work. One set has activities for both Year 1 and Year 2 children. In this set there is a hometalk powerpoint, please do the activities from this powerpoint that are for your child's age range. Unfortunately I had to put the whole powerpoint on because otherwise the links to video clips etc would not work. The other two sets have maths activities appropriate for Year 1 children and Maths activities appropriate for Year 2 children. Once again thank you for all that you are doing at home with your children.


Just for fun

Hello Class Two

I hope that you are all ok and keeping safe and well. I miss you very much and think about you all everyday. I hope that you are managing to have some fun with the activities that I have set you already and are managing to keep learning. A little bit of school work each day that you should be at school will help you a lot. Don't give up - keep going! smiley 


Hello Class Two Parents

Thank you so much for all that you are doing with your children at home - you really are making a difference and I appreciate so much all that you are doing. I fully understand that learning at home is completely different from learning at school, if you can manage a little bit each school day that would be amazing. Please believe that you are doing a brilliant job! 


Please find below a list of activities. As with the last set of activities, there is no rush or pressure to complete all of them. Please work at your child's own pace. The activities can be done in any order you and your child choose.

We went on a visit to Old Hall Farm to support our work in History. We looked at old forms of transport and learned all about traditional farming methods.

Our World Book Day Characters

We had a morning of Team Building activities with instructors from Windermere Outdoor Adventure. It was great fun. We played lots of games that involved team work. We also made shelters in the woods.
