It’s FRIDAY! AND it’s the last day of your time in Year One. Thank you for all the lovely emails and posts on Tapestry, which have made us smile and feel very happy to know you’ve enjoyed the challenges we have set you. We have really enjoyed working with you during this unusual time. It has been wonderful to be able to see some of you back in school for the last few weeks. We hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have; and those of you who have not been able to join us in school we hope you have also enjoyed the home learning instead.
We would like to wish you a lovely summer break and that you have a fantastic time when you start in Year Two in September. We hope you like our videos below. Remember to stay safe and have a fun summer.
I would like to say a HUGE thank you to you all and farewell. I’ve really enjoyed my time with you at Loddon and an extra thank you for the lovely cards, words spoken and gifts. They are very much appreciated. Mrs Bond
Goodbye from Mrs Young
Goodbye from Carol

Children’s Art Week
Children’s Art Week 2020 will take place across 3 weeks from 29th June to 19th July. Activities will take place online, at home and in schools. Each week has a different theme:

Thursday 11th June
Sadly it’s very cloudy and damp today, but we hope you have a good day enjoying the home learning and having fun. Think of the email or Tapestry as a ‘show and tell’; we’d love to hear about other things you are doing at home as well as your home learning.
Some of the teachers and TA’s are in school getting things ready for next week. It’s exciting, but a bit scary for us too, as it will look different to what we are all used to, but we will continue to learn together in a fun way. 😊
Wednesday 10th June
Happy Wednesday Year 1s! We hope you have a good day today. Don’t forget to post on Tapestry or send us an email as we love to see what you’ve been getting up to!

We were so proud of everybody yesterday and it was lovely to see more children come back to school and have an enjoyable day.
The Year 1 team is looking forward to supporting our classes to return to school next week.
It can help , when you are talking about coming back to school, to practise and discuss social distancing by using models or toys. Today we have a craft activity to try where you can make a Lego or Mine craft character to practise social distancing with.
Monday 8th June
Good morning from the Year 1 team, we hope you had a restful weekend. We hope you enjoy the home learning this week. The English and topic work is together for our new book Three by the Sea.

Friday 22nd May
We hope you’ve had a good week, enjoying the home learning activities. We certainly enjoy seeing your posts on Tapestry and messages on email.
Don’t forget to look on Tapestry today. Mrs Bond reads a story called Telephone Ted. It was a favourite of her daughters when they were your age.
Remember – NEXT week is HALF TERM, so there will be NO new home learning posted. You could repeat or do some of the activities we shared during the Easter break – they are almost at the bottom of this page on 3rd April, have a go at any home learning you missed or just enjoy a lovely week doing activities of your choice! – Hopefully the sun will shine and you will be able to spend some time outside, walking or going for bike rides. We’d love to see your messages and emails, but they will not be looked at as frequently by the Y1 team. STAY SAFE and have a lovely Half Term.

Following up from ideas that parents might like to see on our home learning website we are introducing a new way of sharing home learning with you today. We will put the home learning for the week up on the website on a Monday so that you can choose what and when you would like to learn more easily. We will still put up a daily post to keep in contact and share any interesting links with you.
We are going to be posting story videos on Tapestry for the children from today. You can use your Tapestry login to gain access. If you have activated your account but forgotten your password you can reset it by going to the website and using your email address. If you haven’t activated your Tapestry account please let us know by email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will organise a reactivation link to be sent out to you.
We hope you have a lovely day and we are looking forward to hearing from you via email!
