Wow you have been so busy with your work. Today I had work from Finlay-Boi, Pola, Jack and Maria. I love seeing all your work.  I am so proud of you all.

Your rainbow pictures Maria and Finlay-Boi   looked fabulous. They will make people 🙂


Sam and Jax have been writing today but their grammar and spelling is not as good as yours Pine class.

This is what they wrote.:-

todai we plaid  wif the ball

Can you sort their sentence out? it needs purple penning!

Thank you. so much.

I was looking out of window today and i wrote some sentences about it.


Outside my window I saw  two trees.  I saw yellow daffodils and I saw  some grass.  A bird was flying in the sky and a car was parked on the road . 


Can you write some sentences about what you can see outside your window? can you use the word and? what are you going to remember to use?

How are you all?

Sam and Jax were inspired by Jack  and his brother to do their own rainbow.


Children around the country are making rainbows and putting them in their windows to encourage people to stay safe and to stay at home. Have you done one for your home?

I am very proud of Marc for sending me in his homework. He sent me  an email with the work. Did you get the same answers?

Jack has also sent me some pictures of him doing some work.


He has also been doing some exercises.

Grace asked me to  put  My God is so Big  online for you so here it is.


Marc, Grace and Jack  we can all say:


Can you practice reading these words today? can you spot the split digraphs? write them out and put the sound buttons underneath. You can email me your answers.

slide, home, cake, bake, take, inside, bite, pine, swede, eve

Can you also write a funny sentence with the words in?

Bye for  now!!

Miss your faces.

Good morning 1 Pine,

How are you all?

Sam and Jax have been doing some maths in the garden today. They passed the ball to one another and practiced their counting.

They were counting in 10s.

10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80, 90, 100

sometimes they counted forwards and sometimes they counted back. They also counted from different 10 numbers and stopped at different ones too.

30,40,50, 60


Today can you practice counting in 10s forwards and backwards?  and can you answer these questions?

10 more than 20 is ____


50 is 10 more than _____

10 less than 70 is ______


You can write the answers in your notebooks or email me at


Here are our counting in 10s songs for you to practice and move along to:



And here are our other counting in steps songs.

Counting in 5s


and counting in 2s…



I thought I would add our Great Big family of God song too. You can teach your family the actions!




Bye for now
