Happy New Year!

This was not the beginning to the new year that any of us expected but hopefully it won't be long until we are back in the classroom together again. 

We will be setting you work to complete at home and would like you to post as often as possible on Tapestry/send an email to show us how you are getting on.

Please follow the KS1 Home Learning 2021 link at the top of the page for your daily work.

Please see the link on Tapestry (Y1)/sent to your email for the daily Zoom meeting so that we can see each other, pray together and discuss the day's home learning activities.


This half term in our History lessons, we will be learning about some significant world explorers. We will discuss what makes an explorer significant and at the life and voyages of Ibn Battuta, Matthew Henson, Felicity Aston and Neil Armstrong.

In Art our new topic is Colour Chaos where we will look at the life and works of Mondrian, Klee, Delaunay, Pollock and Kandinsky.

In Science in Year 1 we will be studying animals, including humans and Year 2 will be learning about habitats.

Our RE Topic for the first 4 weeks is 'Special People' and we will look at the different roles of the Parish family. We will look at the words and actions of the priest and the people at the start of Mass, and we will read about The Presentation of the Jesus at the Temple.
