Good Morning from Miss Murphy...


Good Morning Year One.. rise and shine! It is a brand new week and I am looking forward to seeing what all of you get up to online this week. I hope you all had a lovely and relaxing weekend at home and had lots of rest. Thank you so much to all the children who registered their attendance and posted their fantastic work on the blog last week- I was so impressed by what I saw! I look forward to seeing even more of you online this week and I will be making phone calls today and tomorrow to those children I haven't year heard from. This is nothing to panic about- it is just to check in, make sure you're OK and see if I can help you in any way with your learning at home. Have a great day everyone and I can't wait to see your fantastic learning on the blog or in your jit5 files. I look forward to seeing what wonderful home learning you all get up to!


Take care and stay safe,

Miss Murphy



Below you can find the lessons we are doing in class today and the order of our learning. However, if you are learning from home, you can do the lessons in whichever order you wish, as long as you try and complete all of them every day, where possible. Make sure that you post your online work onto the blog or save it as a file on the jit5 app write!


For each remote task you do from the timetable you will get 5 house points each- this means you can earn more than 50 house points or class dojos every day! We are using the class dojo house point system instead of j2stars and I will be announcing the three winners with the most house points every week. Every week all children's points are reset to 0 so there is all to play for! I need to see your work to give you the house points so make sure you either upload your work or pictures of it to the blog or complete it on jit and save it as a j2file. For any help on how to do this please click on the link below. The top three children each week will receive a special treat from me when they return to school. Have fun and earn lots of house points!


There is one thing you need to do first however! Before you get started with your learning and begin your day of remote learning please make sure that you follow the registration link below and register that you are here online and reading to learn!

I have outlined some simple instructions below for how to find J2Blast and get practising your spellings!



Big Maths- Beat That and CLIC Tests

Please click on the PDF and find the Beat That Test and CLIC Test with your name on. ( There should be 2 tests each.) Please print, practise and complete at home each day Monday- Thursday. You can then do your final online test on Friday morning.


Please do NOT do your online test until FRIDAY MORNING so I can then see the final test results for everyone after you have practised. Your online Big Maths test should be your final test score and should be done at the end of the week. (anyone who gets a full score for 2 weeks running will be moving up to the next level!)
