Weekly Class News:


Monday 18th January 2021


I hope you have had a lovely weekend. Thank you so much for working with us last week as we got up and running with rimote learning. 


Zoom continues this week at 9:00am for Reception and 9:30am for Year 1 for 30 minutes. This is an opportunity to say Hi, do the register and go through the work set for each day. I will then spend some time on the Year 1 Zooms either doing Maths, English, Phonics or Spellings test. This will vary daily and will be time dependent. The zoom link remains the same as last week for both year groups. 


Please note the Zooms and work set are compulsory and I will be beginning to ring those children who have not yet returned any work. 


Reception please keep any eye on Tapestry for the activities to be completed and Year 1 keep an eye on Google Classroom. 


Any concerns or questions please email me at:

I am in school with the Key worker children some days so please allow flexibility on my responses. 

Take care,

Miss Gaff 😊

Class information:


P.E: This will be on a Thursday for both Reception and Year 1and on a Friday Year 1 have their additional lesson. Please ensure long hair is tied back and the children have their PE kits in school. We will send home PE kits at half term to be washed. 


Year 1 Spellings: Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday for the children to practice. The children will be tested on these the following Wednesday. Please ensure their purple spelling folder is returned every Wednesday ready for the new spellings for the week. The children will have 10 words in total. 5 words will be from the words in the term section below and 5 words will be high frequency words for Year 1. 


Homework: The Year 1 children will have a black homework folder that will be sent home with work inside to complete. This will be sent home on Fridays and is expected to be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Please encourage your child to ensure this is completed. 

Reception homework will be placed in school bags on a Friday with more often than not a letter go with it or a message on Tapestry.


Reading: Please support your child and ensure they read at home every night (even just for 15 minutes) as this will support them greatly. The children will be reading every other day in school and have their books changed twice a week. The books will only be changed if they have read them at home so ensure you have signed their reading books.  

Class Curriculum:


Here you will find the curriculum for Lilac Class for Year 1. Please see Willows class page for Reception. 

Under each term you will find the curriculum overview and the spellings for that term.
