We are now in the sixth week of the Summer 2 half term and the FINAL week of our Year 1 bubbles in school! We are still so PROUD of how sensible and hard working you have been, even when school looks a little bit different. 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 this week, 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. 
  • Please continue to email us to say hello and to share something that you have done at home - our email is 

Take care and stay safe, 

Miss Alderson & Miss Harrison


Zoom meetings

We hope that you have enjoyed the last three Zoom meetings that we have had! Thank you for being super smiley and so happy to join us during our meetings. We loved listening to the three facts that you would like to share with your new teacher(s). 

This week, we are going to do something a little bit different - we are going to go on a Scavenger Hunt! This will involve either Miss Alderson or Miss Harrison giving you a clue and then with your grown up's help, you will have to go and find something in your house. Once you have found it, hold it up on your camera so we can see it! Lots of other year groups have done this as part of their Zoom meetings and it has been A LOT OF FUN. 

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 everyone who have sent us their rainbows to help us celebrate the different skin colours in our St. Matthew's community. We have received lots more rainbows! We will collate all of the pictures and display them on a slideshow so we can celebrate our School's diversity. If you haven't sent yours in yet, don't worry - we can keep adding pictures as we receive them. 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.
