We worked on our communication skills in PE. We worked as a team and focused on supporting each other to complete the tasks.
In Juno, we explored the history of schooling. We were fortunate enough to have two guests zoom call us. The first was, Mrs jones, who explained her experience of schools from 70 years ago. We then spoke with Mrs Frith-Sly who explained the history of Camulos Academy.
Today we explored our local area for our next piece of writing a 'house sale advertisement'. We used persuasive language, comparative language and adjectives.

Hello yellow day in Juno
Marshmallows and spaghetti!
For design and technology we used spaghetti and marshmallows to create bridges. It was lots of fun but not as fun as Miss Pickard had cleaning it all up after school!!
Castle and shield drawings
The children got enthusiastic about their new topic but creating some shields and drawings of castles.
The children investigated tunnelling animals in science. We explored the school grounds to see what animals we could find and what tunnels they were digging. We then went on to investigate by they dig tunnels. We created an investigation fact file full of facts all about Rabbits and why they create tunnels.
The children enjoyed drawing pictures of castles for yesterdays lesson so much they asked for the link to be shared!
Hello everyone, below you will find resources, plans and activities to support your child's learning during this time. Please click the link below to the generic home learning where you can find additional resources.
For the next two weeks of home learning, you will find a document labelled 'Home learning pack summer 2 week 5,6 and 7' below. This document lays out two weeks worth of Maths, English and Foundation subjects. There is a page outlining the lessons we would like you to complete for each subject in the pack. If there is any accompanying worksheets they will be found on the next pages of the document. On top of this, some of the lessons require an accompanying PowerPoint or resource pack these are found underneath the home learning document below. We have also included links to other websites and resourceful online learning. These are optional and are in addition to the home learning packs that we have sent out. We understand that these times are difficult and children may struggle to complete learning at home. So please try your best and if you have any questions do not hesitate to email us.
If you were looking for more work for your child to do, there are several websites that you can access that have daily lessons on. Please see below:
More support can be found on https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/. On this website you will find Set 1, 2 and 3 sounds. Most of the Year 1 children are still learning Set 2 and 3 sounds. Start with Set 2 sounds and if your child can access the learning quite easily then move to Set 3. Some children were in the shared reading group whereby they read passages and books and answered comprehension questions. If this is your child (they should know, if not if they know all the Set 3 sounds move onto shared reading) Continue to use the comprehension questions from the last two weeks (scroll down to find reading comprehension questions document).
You may have recently become aware that the Government have released an online learning resource website for parents to use as home learning. This is optional and additional work already set by the class teacher. Please do not feel you have to use this resource but we have put it on here so it is available if you need it.
Hi all, I have attached a document which outlines the end of year objectives that we aim to meet for Year 1 for each subject. Please use this document as a guideline as every child's learning is different and unique. It should help you see the expectation we have for our Year 1s and what we aim to achieve by the end of Year 1. (Taken from the Government national curriculum document)
In year 1 we recommend sticking to a timetable each day. This will hopefully help ease the transition for your child and keep some stability and normality. Below I have listed roughly what our daily timetables look like:
8.30-9.00 - Reading
9.00-9.30 - Daily exercise (see joe wicks PE video on YouTube)
Below is a link that opens a Virtual Bookbag, the Collins e-books follow the reading scheme we have in school and allows the children a hub of books to enjoy. Simply click the link, enter your details and start reading!
Hi all, if you’re looking for useful apps to help support their learning - give these a try!
The boys were very pleased with their teamwork keeping the structure up!
Sports relief day! We got out our PE kits and got active! We kicked off the day explaining what Sports relief is all about. Then we got active with Joe wicks and did a quick HIIT workout. After we cooled down our bodies and focused on our yoga. To end the day we did a lap around the playground with year 3 helping us.
For science week we have been focusing on predicting. Next week we will investigate these materials!
Sapphire and Lillie-Mai with their science fair projects!
We had a variety of activities on world book day. We read to each other and th year 6s came down and read to us. We made bookmarks and our own book covers for our stories.
On world book day we had a special visit from Miss South. She came in to see Juno in their amazing outfits.
In Juno this is how we say morning! We either 'high five' or 'hug' or ' dance' or 'say it'
Wind socks!! We made wind socks and then investigated their uses.
Juno enjoyed Maths day this February! They had lots of practical activities to consolidate their maths learning so far this year.
Dinosaur immersion day - The children went on a dinosaur hunt in the forest to immerse themselves in their new topic...
We have been researching all about dinosaurs and finding lots of different facts!!
We have been fossil making!
For Rememberance day we made poppy wreaths
Enchanted woodland immersion day in the forest!
Welcome Juno class to Year 1! Juno have already enjoyed playing in the new year 1 outside area.
Welcome to Year 1 Juno class
Time to say farewell to our class butterflies 🦋 The children have loved watching them grow and change 🐛 We even wrote them some letters to send them on their way ❤️
Today we investigated different containers to home Finley the fish 🐟 Children measured how many cups it took to fill each one and find the best home for Finley. The children chose the container which had the most capacity.
Over the past few weeks we’ve carried out a number of different investigations which involve working collaboratively. We have had to use high order thinking skills and team work to solve different problems such as sharing equally, understanding properties of shape and even physics! I think these children are going to fly in year one ☺️
Little pig, little pig, let me in!
Children were challenged to design a stick house that would stop the big bad wolf blowing it down.
Getting ready for Year 1
Welcome to Juno's class page, check in frequently to keep up to date with all the fun and interesting things we have been learning.
We recently invited parents to a maths morning session. Parents watched how we teach and how the children engage in the independent activities. Parents told me they "loved it!"
Some of our small world tuff spot activities we've had out to spark their imaginations.
