Friday 22nd January 2021


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




How are you all today? Well done to all of you for making it to the end of another fantastic week of learning. I know I keep saying this but it has truly been such a pleasure to see all your amazing work this week, whether it be on the blog, through j2files or by email. I so enjoy seeing all you get up to every day and thankyou to everyone who has posted this week. I spoke to a few of your parents on the phone yesterday and once again it was such a joy. You all seem to be working super hard at home and it was so lovely to speak to your parents and check in.


The weekend is almost upon us... 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. There is also a Star of the Week Video on this page where you can see me announce my choice for this week. Don't forget it is Friday which means I will also be announcing the top three winners at 3pm. Make sure all your work is done by then and either emailed to me or put on the blog so you can get your house points counted before the big reveal! 


I have put some super cool Science videos all about Sea Creatures and Living Animals in their Habitats that you might want to have a look at. You can see videos of different animals at the zoo or even listen to a story from a mermaid! Head to the bottom of this page to the Extra/ Challenge section to check it out. However, this is completely optional and today is only a half day- you can finish your learning at 1pm.

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 -


Thank you once again to everybody for all their hard work and I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Have a great day and see you on Monday!



Kind Regards,


Miss Murphy and Mrs Lynch

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.
