Remote learning

As you will have seen from all of the parent mail which has been sent out, our online remote learning has moved to Microsoft Teams. From Monday 18th January, all work will be posted on Microsoft Teams whereby children can access teaching videos, find their work for the day and even hand in their work virtually.

If you have any questions or queries about this, please contact the school office where help will be available.

Keep up the good work everyone, we are extremely proud of you,

The Lumbertubs Team 😊

Hello Year 1.

We have made it to the end of our first week of remote learning, so well done.

Parents, you are hopefully aware that from next week [18.1.21] we will no longer be using the website - all home remote learning will be uploaded onto Microsoft Teams.  So please make sure you set up the log-in details for your child. Remember you can already access some phonics lessons with Mrs Harris, on Teams!

Here is our learning for today.


Find the missing adjectives to complete the sentences.


Have another try at counting in 10's using the video link from yesterday.

Now choose a counting in 10's dot to dot picture to complete and colour.

Celebration Time!!

On a Friday afternoon in school we usually have some celebration time as a reward for working so hard during the week.  So here is a winter story for you to watch and listen.


Percy the Park Keeper: One Snowy Night

Could you draw a picture and write some sentences about the story?  What did you see?  Which part of the story did you like best?

Do you have any toy animals?  Could you use them to act out the story?

Do you have any lego or building bricks?  Could you make a shelter for all the animals to keep warm out of the snow?

Have a lovely weekend everyone.  Well done for working hard this week.  Don't forget to log on to Microsoft Teams next week.

Keep safe.

Here is another activity to help you understand and find adjectives.  You will need your scissors and glue again!


Read the sentences to your grown up, once you have finished.
