Well done everyone and thank you!
Dear Year One Parents,
I cannot believe we are at the end of this school year already and what a mix up of a year it has been.
I would like to say a huge well done to all of the year 1 children at Vine Tree Primary School for getting through this challenging and strange school year. Whether you've joined in with the home-learning activities or kept yourself busy in other ways, I am equally proud of all of you.
I hope you all enjoy a well earned summer break enjoying time with you families.
Thank you for making me feel so welcome in year 1 and I wish you all the very best as you venture into year 2 in September.
Please enjoy singing these songs with your family as a way of remembering our time together.
Welcome to the FINAL week of the school year!!!
July 13th - 17th 2020

English - Reading and Phonics
This week's 'Getepic' assignments are ready and waiting for you!
Have a go at the assignments set for you by Mrs Morris on our page.
Just before half term I set up an account for children on getepic.
This site contains lots of books, videos and audio books. Each child has their own avatar. Children will start off at level 1 and the more they read they will begin moving up levels. I can monitor what they have read each week. They are free to choose any books they wish.
I have been very impressed by the amount of reading some children have done already and look forward to seeing more this week.
See details below if you've not yet logged in.

and read as much as you like!

Spend time outside listening to the sounds around you. Some will be natural and some will be man-made. What can you hear. Can you describe the sounds you hear?

real PE at home – online learning resources
real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000's of hours of fun and activity.
For children in Key Stage 2 there are carefully selected personal best challenges, skills and games designed for the home and garden. Daily and weekly guidance is provided for both programmes in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical well being but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months.
Welcome to Year One

Love from Year 1
Watch our video from World Book Day. We visited the library and celebrated WBD 2020 by dressing up and learning about a lost word from our focus text, 'The Lost Words' by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris
Can you guess our lost word????
