Don't forget to have all your online work on the blog or on jit 5 by 3pm today. At 3pm I will be announcing the top three house point winners this week so if you don't have your work in by then you will be too late and your housepoints for today won't be registered. Good luck everyone! Click on the link below to find out the top three at 3pm.
Don't forget also that I will be resetting the house points back to 0 over the weekend so that everyone will start on Monday with the same score or house points. This will happen each week. As everyone starts on the same score on Mondays at the start of every week this means there is all to play for and anybody can win!
Good Morning Year One
I hope you have all had a wonderful week and have enjoyed learning at home- congratulations on
making it to the end of your second week of remote learning! It has been such a pleasure to see all of your fabulous work on the blog this week and I have been busy having phone calls with all of your parents. I have so loved checking in with you all and it seems like you are all working extra hard at home. The feedback from all your parents has been so lovely and they have truly put a smile on my face this week so thank you. It is almost time for the weekend and make sure you wrap up warm because we may have some snow again again according to the weather! I absolutely LOVE snow and always think it looks so pretty over everything.
It is almost time for the weekend... just a few more hours of learning to go! Don't forget to complete your Big Maths and Spelling Test online and to try and get onto our Perfect Score Leader board. I will also be announcing the top three winners at 3pm on the House Point Winners page so make sure you tune in! Don't forget today is only a half day and that we finish our learning straight after lunch on a Friday... unless you want to do more of course! Thank you for all your hard work at home and have a relaxing and fun filled weekend. Remember to stay safe and I look forward to seeing all your fantastic learning on Monday.
Remember, if at any time you have any queries about the home learning or if you need any support, please send me an email to the address below - firstname.lastname@example.org.

Friday Spelling Test on J2 Blast

Please complete your weekly Friday spelling test using J2 blast which is on the BGFL App Launchpad. You should have been practising our spelling all week and you can complete the test on here and play lots of fun games! I will also be able to see your weekly score on here and see any spellings you have got wrong ( if any.)
I will be announcing those children that have got 10 out of 10 on their spelling test every week in the Spellings and Big Maths Leaderboard Folder which is at the top of the Year One Remote Learning Page. I have outlined some simple instructions below for how to find J2Blast and complete your spelling test.
If you can-not access the BGFL launchpad and j2blast for any reason I have also given a copy of the spellings below. Your parents or families can use these spellings to test you at home and you can then upload a picture of your spelling test to the blog. I would really encourage you to try and use j2blast online if you can as it is so much easier!
Please now go onto the Big Maths website and complete your CLIC and Learn it Tests online. You have been practising them on paper all week but if you do not complete them online I can't see your scores! You have all had your logins sent home in the plastic wallet pack and if you click on the picture below it will take you straight to the Big Maths website.
