Morning morning morning!
IT’S FRIDAY! You have made it through your first week! Children and adults, you are all amazing. Thank you! ❤️
Today I would like you to think about all the things you have been up to this week. Now choose your favourite memory, maybe an activity you have done, a game you have played, a time you have spent with your family, anything! Then write a sentence about the memory you choose and remember to use because to explain why. ‘My favourite memory of my first week is ... because ...’ and draw a picture to go with your sentence.
I’m missing seeing your beautiful Hollybush handwriting you all have worked so hard on recently so I would really love for you to send me a photo of your work! (Adults, maybe you could have a go at this too to share with your children).
You may have already noticed a new section on our Year 1 class page, ‘Story Time’. I’m not about to become a YouTube superstar but I have managed to work out how to record and upload a video of me reading for you (much harder than it looks!). Every few days I will upload a new story and the first one is there for you now. I’ll let you know as I add some more, enjoy! 📚
Hope you have a well deserved rest this weekend! Take care and speak to you soon! Miss White x

Can you believe we have nearly finished our first week? You are all making me so proud! I know you are making your adults at home proud too by the incredible messages and photos I’m so lucky to keep being sent, keep it up you superstars! ⭐️
It’s been really lovely to see photos of so many of you enjoying being outside in the beautiful sunshine we have had this week. So today’s challenge is to do something outside, absolutely anything! (Please make sure you follow the Prime Minister’s rules and do this safely). You could go for a walk, eat your lunch outside, do one of our weekly activities outside, look for some wildlife, absolutely anything you want! Can’t wait to see what you choose to do! ☀️
I’m in school this afternoon with Mr Mallick and Mr Millard (the second) so I will really look forward to seeing your messages when we finish!
My email address is email@example.com if you haven’t used it already.
Enjoy your Thursday everyone! Miss White x

Hello there! 😊
It’s Wednesday morning so that means it is usually time for all of you in my Read Write Inc group to beat me at ‘Jump In’! I hope you’ve all be reading lots while you’ve been at home and watching some of the online Read Write Inc lessons too, there are new ones every day on here.
Our class gallery is beginning to have lots of brilliant pictures in it now. Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me something so far. Keep them coming, they are really making me smile! Make sure you have a look at it today to see what your fabulous friends have been up to.
Yesterday I went for a walk in the sunshine around where I live (making sure I listened to the Prime Minister’s rules when I was out) and saw lots of beautiful rainbow pictures in people’s windows. They really cheered me up! Have you made one for your window yet? I would love to see it if you have. I’m going to make one for my window later. I’ll send you all a photo when it is finished! 🌈
Today’s challenge is a bit of a chilly one... Can you find a small toy, put it in some water and put it in the freezer? When the water has frozen and turned to ice, see how you can get the toy back out. You might want to freeze a few toys separately and use a few ideas to see which way works best to free the toy! Good luck!
Speak to you soon! Miss White x

It was so lovely to hear from some of you yesterday and see the brilliant things you have been up to at home. I think you all need to give yourselves and your amazing adults a great big faaaaantastic for your first day! 👏🏼
It was also brilliant to hear that so many of you joined in with Joe Wicks’ PE online. I hope you joined in this morning too! I did and need a nap now, it was exhausting! Don't worry if you can't join in at 9am every day, you can catch up on them here.
Yesterday afternoon we would have usually had our reading assembly, so today’s challenge is to read or listen to any Julia Donaldson book you might have at home. Don’t worry if you don’t have any, there’s plenty of them to listen to and join in with on YouTube! Will you read the Gruffalo, Room on a Broom, maybe the Smartest Giant in Town? Maybe you could get some fresh air and enjoy a story outside if you have a safe space to do so. I would love to hear what you choose! 📚
Adults, I know that some of you are not yet signed up to MarvellousMe. I will be using this to send messages over the coming weeks so it would be great for you all to see them. If you need your details to sign up, please email me.
Have a great day everyone whatever you get up to! Keep in touch, Miss White x

Hey everyone! 👋🏼
Well this is a little bit different to our normal Monday morning! I’m going to really miss seeing your faces today and every day!
I’m at school this morning with a few of the other teachers, looking after the children of key workers. They are adults who the Prime Minister has told to keep working hard to help keep us all healthy and safe. ⭐️
Each day I will set you a different challenge on this blog. Today, I would really love to see what you are all up to on your first day at home. Please email me with some pictures that I can add to our class gallery - it is very empty at the moment! ☹️
Please also take time today to have a look around the different pages I have created for you on here. If you have any questions, please email them to me too.
Keep an eye out each morning for another update! Miss White x
