Hi Bumblebees!


Wow, today is your last day in Year One! We just wanted to say a huge well done to each and every one of you. We are both so proud of all of your achievements this year. 

We have really enjoyed seeing some of you at home this week to say goodbye and we hope you all have a really wonderful summer holiday.


We look forward to seeing you in Year Two!

Summer Holiday Learn Something New Challenge


I can’t believe it’s nearly the Summer Holiday! To keep your busy over the Summer Holidays I would like you to think of 5 things you would like to learn/achieve or things you’d like to be better at.


For example


One of Miss Carter’s ideas is…


To learn how to plait her horse’s tail.


Can you think of 5 things you’d like to learn? Write them down on a piece of paper as a poster and put a box at the end of each one so you can tick them off when they are done!


Then decorate your poster and stick it to your fridge.


We are learning all of the time! These don’t have to be massive things like learning how to speak fluent Spanish but things you’d like to do and can actually do over the Summer Holidays.


If you keep your poster handy, you can show your new teachers next year what you have learnt. You might even want to bring in photographs and/or example of what you have done?


Here are some ideas…


- learn a new skill (sewing or cooking a particular food)

- how to ride your book without stabilisers

- walk 5k with your family

- read 15 books

Wow, what a year it has been! I can’t believe we are now on our last day of Year One.

Today I want you to think back on your year and create a word cloud. You might want to include the names of your friends in your class, your teachers or special moments from the year.


You can create a word cloud using this link or you might want to draw a bumblebee and write the words inside.

Get an adult to help you if you are working on line.



Need some more ideas?


If you would like an OPTIONAL spelling task.

Please find below the animal challenges.

There are many ways these can be practised at home, for example, using chalks or paints. The challenges we have provided do not mirror the challenge they reached at school. For the time being we would like you to focus on recapping these first. Maybe just choose 4 or 5 at a time so it is not overwhelming. 

Please contact us on purple mash if you have any questions.



Purple mash has lots of fun maths games. You can also find lots of interactive games on

Be careful with the settings for some of the games - they can become tricky quickly. 



Teach your monster to read is currently free to download on the apple app store and only 99p for androids. The fun games take your child through the process of learning a new sound, practising using that sound and applying their knowledge to write words. It is a fun game and they won't even realise they are learning! 


You child has an espresso login in their reading record. You can use this to login to discovery education - espresso. If you have saved your login details the following QR code will take you straight to Ash's phonics which most of the children have nearly completed. Here they can watch videos and complete activities for each of the phase 5a sounds. 



If you have any further questions please contact me via 2email on Purple Mash.
