Good morning Year One, I hope you're all well and enjoyed being in the sunshine at the weekend.

Well done to lots of you who have emailed me to get your Sumdog logins and who collected their work packs on Friday.

If you have not done these, please feel free to email me ( to get your logins and pick your work packs up from the school reception area this week.

Have a lovely Easter, keep smiling and take care,

Miss Collyer:)



Good Morning,

I have attached this link this morning as they are good little videos to help your child's phonic knowledge.

Everyone now has a login for 'SumDog' which has a range of Maths and Reading activities on, please email me and I shall send you your child's new login details.

I will also be putting printed activity packs together, which will be available from the school reception Friday afternoon . Remember these are ideas to support your child's learning, you do not need to do a certain amount a day, just do what you feel is right for your child.

Any questions, please just ask.


Good Morning Year One,

I hope you are all doing OK and are keeping busy as well as doing some exercise daily. Below I have uploaded some activities including a phonics game you can play with your family.
