Good morning my little Year 1's it's Friday today and we have all done amazing and worked so hard in week 1 of our new way of learning at home and keeping each other safe Have you looked at or been using the Oxford Owl website to help you with your phonics and your reading? (https://bit.ly/39mjfeG) There are lots of practice sheets for sounding out and blending Set 1, 2 and 3 sounds. There are speedy green word slideshows and reading books for you too so that you can keep practicing and WOW me when we are back at school! Mrs Sheldon also shared with me that it's National Scribble day today, https://nationaldaycalendar.com/events/national-scribble-day/ - why don't you take the challenge and have a go?
Mrs Clarke also found these amazing new signs of spring!!
These are 2 new super blossom trees at Akeley to replace the old poorly ones outside our classroom, where the new wooden play castle is. I can't wait to show you where these new trees have been planted, when we get back to school.
A BIG THANK YOU to Finn, Mrs Wrigley and Mrs Pedder, you have been busy looking at signs of spring for me and Year 1 The photos are super! Thank you for your science detective work!
Also a BIG THANK YOU to Mrs Kerins for adding to our Year 1 and the Year 2 class pages its so lovely to hear what she has been up to too! Well done on the Joe Wicks PE lessons - it looks like hard work!!

Good morning Year 1 How are you all today? How are you getting on with your home learning?
What is Mrs Clarke up to today? Well I'm at school, but not at Akeley, I'm on the Chackmore site today with Mrs Pedder. I have got some work to do today, so I will be busy like you. It was lovely driving to school and seeing the sun shining. It was also really lovely as I saw Stanhope walking his dog with his Daddy. That was a lovely surprise on my way here.Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning Year 1 What signs of spring did you find yesterday in your garden? This is what Mrs Clarke found growing in her garden.
Buds are shooting and flowers are beginning to blossom and the sun is shining!
Have you looked at our Year 1 page on the website too? Mrs Clarke was busy yesterday changing things around and making it look pretty. I have also added all your spellings as promised so that you can still carry on learning your weekly spellings at home
Please also ask Mummy or Daddy to look at the book which Mrs Clarke saw on the news earlier. It is a lovely story to help you to understand why we are at home keeping everyone safe at the moment. You can read this book free on the website nursedottybooks.com

Good morning Year 1. How was your first day of home learning yesterday? There are lots of activities on the school website. Read Write Inc are offering on-line phonic lessons, White Rose Hub have daily maths activities and there are PE sessions with Joe Wicks. The teachers are also reading stories on You Tube, to make sure that we stay in touch and so that you know we are all thinking of you and missing you. I will be adding one soon, so look out for it!
Today we would have been going to Forest School with Mrs McKenzie, so instead of going to the forest, your challenge today is to go out into your garden instead. Look at how it is changing. What can you see growing? Can you see any tiny buds? What can you hear? Can you find something which smells lovely? Why not watch Mrs McKenzie's 'Frog Blog' too!
Did you guess who was on the big tree log with Mrs Clarke? That was Dexter. He is my son's dog and he is about 2 years old and full of life and fun. Mrs Clarke is going to be busy adding your spellings to the website today. Look out for them, then you can practice your weekly spellings and do your own spelling test on Friday's with Mummy or Daddy, instead of doing it in class with me. Keep your results and then when we can give out all those house points and stickers when we get back to school!
Remember to stay safe!
