Here is where you will find any information regarding your childs learning and school journey.
This year your child will have 5 supporting adults that they will work with at different points in the week:
Class Teacher: Miss Couchman
LSA's: Mrs Hinton, Mrs Hinks, Mrs Reeves, and Mrs Taylor.
I cannot believe that it is our last week as Class 1! Time has flown by
You have been an absolute pleasure to teach and I will miss you all so much.
This week I would like you to enjoy yourselves, showcase your brilliance, and prepare for year 2. I will attach a transition booklet for you to complete to take to your new class
I have uploaded the new weekly project which includes lots of fun, interactive activities. I hope you enjoy them. Please ensure you send me in your work to firstname.lastname@example.org and also access Google Classroom to find weekly activities!
Today we learnt Spanish with VS. VS has been virtually learning Spanish at home through zoom and the class were excited for her to share what she had learnt so far. We all learnt to say hello and what our names were.
Today we carried out a shadow experiment. We observed how they changed throughout the day, by drawing our shadows at 2 hour intervals. We found that as the sun moved in the sky, our shadows moved.
Good morning Class 1
I hope you have had a lovely weekend. I have uploaded the new weekly project. I hope you enjoy it.
Remember to send in work to email@example.com and also make sure that you are accessing Google classroom for weekly activities
Today we took part in a miniature class sports day practise. We ran against one another in pairs. It was a lot of fun!!
For the last few weeks we have been exploring the work of Lowry, and have begun creating our own pictures. Here Is our class art gallery where we have collated all of our fabulous work.
Good morning class 1!
I hope you have had a lovely weekend and that you are rested and ready to learn this week!
I have attached our new project for you to enjoy
Make sure to send your work complete to firstname.lastname@example.org and ensure that you are accessing google classroom
Today we enjoyed a water fight in the sun! It was great fun and really cooled us down
Today we planted a class sunflower. We are going to make sure that we water it every day and care for it, so that it grows tall and healthy. We will keep you updated on its growth
Today we worked scientifically to explore puddles. We made our own, and then observed how long each took to dry. We found that the puddles in the sun, on concrete, were quicker to dry than those in the shade (4 times quicker!!). We also found that puddles on the grass soaked in (absorbed by the mud) whereas puddles on the concrete evaporated. We wrote about our findings and drew pictures of the experiment.
Good morning Class 1! I hope you have all enjoyed the weekend and the beautiful sunshine. I have uploaded the new weekly project for you to enjoy this week
Make sure to send any work that you do to me at email@example.com and ensure you are accessing google classroom
WOW! JP you are amazing and I am so so proud of you
The work you are producing is phenomenal. I absolutely loved your Lowry drawing. It was fantastic. Keep up the good work. You are a star
In science today we learnt all about the method of freezing by making our very own ice lollies. The children said they tasted ‘so so nice’. It was a perfect treat for a beautiful day

So on Tuesday a few members of class 1 decided to return to school. We have had so much fun already. I will make sure to update you on what we get up to. Remember if you are working from home to continue to send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org and also go and check out Google classroom

Good morning Year 1 and welcome to week 2!
A little poem for you to remember our school days (Ive changed the name from an original)
In Miss Couchmans class
You could travel up the Blue Nile
with your finger, tracing the route
while Miss Couchman chanted the scenery.
”Tana. Ethiopia. Khartoum. Aswan.”
That for an hour,
then a skittle of milk
and the chalky Pyramids rubbed into dust.
A window opened with a long pole.
The laugh of a bell swung by a running child.
This was better than home. Enthralling books.
The classroom glowed like a sweetshop.
Sugar paper. Coloured shapes.
Miss Couchman adored you. Some mornings, you found
she'd left a gold star by your name.
The scent of a pencil slowly, carefully, shaved.
Enjoy this week. Spend time with family. Make memories. Smile and play!
Maybe even write your own poem and send it as brilliance. I can then share it for all to see!!
Keep up the fantastic work at home ! Just because I don't see you every day does not stop me being your teacher. I am so proud of every single one of you!
Please send any work to email@example.com
As this an uncertain time I have attached a support pack, filled with home learning ideas for you and your child to explore. These activities are linked to our current topic of ‘exploring our world’ through fairytales. It therefore would be amazing if your child’s learning and brilliance could be recorded, to share upon their return to school in the near future.
Thank you you so much for your cooperation. I will ensure to be in contact and update you accordingly. If you are unsure about anything or require additional resources please do not hesitate to contact me for support.
Miss. Couchman 😊
Here is an example of how our travel agent role play area is used. Today the children pretended to book holidays for one another. They gathered information from their peers to ensure that they booked them their perfect holiday!
Today we learnt how to control our feelings through ‘Power Thoughts Day’. We were shown lots of useful tips and tools to help us when we feel big feelings in our bodies.
Reminder to all
Please ensure that your child is coming to school with all of the required items please:
Also can you ensure that your childs name is clearly written in their belongings to avoid children misplacing their items.
Thank you in advance,
Today we were visited by the reading bus. We had a lot of fun choosing books to read, which we shared with friends. We were then given the opportunity to invite our parents to come in, look at and purchase books to take home.
This term, with the help of Paddington, we will be learning all about London with many
fantastic activities planned. We look forward to working in partnership with you to provide the children with an exciting terms learning.
