National Sport Week 20th-26th June 2020
How do you fancy challenging friends, family or neighbours to some fun, virtual sporting activities this summer?
At national children’s charity, the Youth Sport Trust, we are determined to ensure that young people stay active and connected through this difficult time. We’ve been helping families do this with our daily #StayHomeStayActive activities since March and now we’re challenging the public to go one step further by joining us in our first ever National School Sport Week at Home, supercharged by Sky Sports.
Taking place from 20-26 June, the week will give families, communities, schools and sports clubs the opportunity to take part in a series of virtual sporting challenges which help young people capture the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie they may be missing out on and the Youth Sport Trust is delighted that Sky Sports will be helping to supercharge the campaign.
How do I find out more?
Registering couldn’t be simpler. Just go to our website www.youthsporttrust.org/nssw and click on the link for parents. You will be asked a couple of questions as you register about who you might challenge and how many people you would like to get involved.
After signing up we will provide you with free and easy-to-use resources to help plan your week of National School Sport Week at Home Activity, set challenges for your families, friends and neighbours, and shout about it online.
So, what are you waiting for? Join the growing number of people who will be running, jumping and throwing their way to glory from 20-26 June.
A Message from the Teachers:
Hello to all of our lovely children in Y1 and Y2. We are all missing you very much. We know that you will all be doing lots of interesting things at home and we thought it would be so nice if we could read about or even see something that you have been doing each week.
Now, as you know, each week we add work on to this page for you to try at home. We know that everybody’s time at home is different. Some of you might get lots of work done and some of you might do a little bit of work but you might do other things instead and that is absolutely fine.
So that we can read about or see what you have been up to, we thought it would be nice if you could ask an adult at home to help you to send an email to us (just once a week). In this email you could either just send us a little message, perhaps telling us about something you have done or you could insert a photo to show us something you have done or made. This could be to do with the work we have put on the Class Pages or it might be something else. You might want to show us a new Joe Wicks move or tell us about some gardening you have done. It is up to you – it will just be wonderful to hear from you.
If you really can’t think of anything at all the just send us a message saying ‘Hello’.
Once you have sent us a message we will send you a message back so that you know that we have read and seen it.
It will be so lovely to hear and see all of the things that you have been up to and we can’t wait to get back in touch with you.
If you are in Blue class please send your email to both:
email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are in Yellow class please send your email to:
If you are in Red class please send your email to both:
email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
We are all very excited to hear from you.
Love from your teachers.

Our topic this term is:
During this topic will use a range of geographical skills to compare England and Ghana. We will investigate weather patterns and discuss the impact of humans on the geography of an area.
If you have any books,resources or items to show relating to anything about England or Ghana it would be brilliant if you could bring them into school for us to share.
Make sure that any books that you bring in have your name in them so that we can keep them safe in school.
Other information that will help you...
Children will be set alternately, a Mathletics homework or English-based homework each week.
Children are also expected to read with an adult, a minimum of three times per week.
Look carefully at all of the phonics sounds that we will be working on throughout the year.
They are in phase order and the more you work on these sounds the better your reading, spelling and writing will become.
OTIS is on Wednesday and your second PE session is either on Monday (Blue Class), Tuesday (Yellow Class), or Friday (Red Classes) Your PE kit should be in school EVERY DAY as we may include physical activities in other lessons.
Don't forget to bring your water bottle into school each day and remember to sip lots of water throughout the day. This will help to keep you healthy and will also help you to concentrate with your work.
Also, please remember to bring your book bag with your reading book and contact book in each day.
There are many websites which are useful for phonics activities and early Mathematics. Please have a look at some and share these with your children.
If you would like any support with any of these please feel free to pop in after school.
