We are now in the fourth week of the Summer 2 half term! We hope that the children who returned to school last week thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We loved seeing you back in school and we are SO PROUD of how you handled all of the new routines and changes. Here are a couple of reminders:

  • Home learning content will continue to uploaded to our class page. Please note yellow highlight text on the WALT overview. 
  • For those children who have opted to return in the coming weeks, please ensure that you have seen the video, outlining the changes to our school. 
  • As mentioned on our Zoom call, Miss Alderson is looking for any feedback regarding our home learning and communication from a Year 1 perspective. We welcome and will listen to both positive and constructive feebdack to ensure that we are doing all that we can to support you and your child during this time. Please email FAO Miss Alderson. 
  • The 'Phonics Actions' that we use for each sound are still available. Please email if you would like a copy.

Take care and stay safe,

Zoom call

Last Wednesday was our first ever Zoom call! It was so lovely to see so many of you so thank you for joining us! We will be holding another class Zoom meeting this Wednesday and as last week, you will receive the link via ParentMail. 
This week, we would like all children to think about a time that they have really enjoyed during the Lockdown period - this could be anything from going out for a walk to spending time with family. We would like all children to draw a picture of that time to show everyone on Zoom. 

During the call, we will ask each child to: 

  • Show their picture;
  • Tell us about their picture, including what they did during this time; 
  • Why they enjoyed this particular time so much. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email 

We can't wait to see you on Wednesday!


Raising awareness

A huge thank you to the three children who have sent us their rainbows to help us celebrate the different skin colours in our St. Matthew's community. We are hoping that we will receive more rainbows this week so we are able to display them on our website, and show our commitment towards supporting everyone in our community. If you're wondering where to find the information from, please look at Week commencing Monday 15th June 2020


Weekly overview

Below is the weekly overview which outlines the learning objectives (WALTs) that are going to covered in the tasks.

Here is a reminder of how our differentiation works: 

  • 1 chilli mild - the easiest version of the task.
  • 2 chillies medium - the version that we'd expect most children to be able to access. 
  • 3 chillies spicy - a difficult version of the task for children that require a challenge. 
  • 4 chillies super spicy - the most difficult version of the task for the children that require a challenge, having securely understood previous tasks. 

Please don't be afraid to hop between the different levels of challenge.
