It was so lovely to see most of you at school this weekend and I hope you all enjoyed your time with your friends!
Thank you for such a great year. I have had so much fun teaching you all. Good luck with the rest of your time at Sacred Heart, enjoy Year 2!

We love our picnic lunches in the sunshine!
Telling the time is SO tricky but we’ve really enjoyed practicing. Look at Nathan’s wonderful clock!
Our science experiment- we didn’t love the smell of vinegar but we loved making a volcano and watching the balloon blow up!
Working hard in 1M!
Unfortunately, we can’t have our class photos this year. But what we are going to do instead is make a whole-school rainbow collage! We would love as many of you as possible to be involved- it’s going to look great. What you need to do is take a photo wearing a YELLOW top (against a yellow background if you can, if not against a white background) and send it to us. We can’t wait to see the finished product- you’ll have it sent to you at the end of term.
Today we welcomed our second “bubble” of children back to 1M. We have all adapted so well to being back in the classroom and have loved seeing our friends! We can’t wait to be back next week
Today Abigail made some delicious vegan falafel! Her Mummy sent us the recipe so we can try and make it at home too.
Welcome back 1M!
Bethel loves our Victorian topic! Look at the delicious Victorian cake that her and her sister made. I wish we could try some! Enjoy girls.
On Friday, it will be Feast Day and we would love for us all to still celebrate, even though we’re not at school. This week, you can create a picture of what Sacred Heart means to you. Email your creations to me and Miss Pipkin will be sharing them in Friday’s assembly! I know we have some super artists in 1M, so there will be some amazing pieces of work to share how special Sacred Heart is. Here’s an example for you- do you recognise it?!
1M is turning into the School of Rock! Look how busy Abigail has been today- she has also made a guitar as well as constructing her own swimming pool. Wow Abigail, I am so proud of your work!
Yohan’s week is off to a super start! He has produced some wonderful writing about Iggy Peck and evening made his own guitar. Maybe you and Nathan could start a band! We can’t wait to see you back at school soon, Yohan.
I have received some super work from 1M this week! Oskar has been very busy taking photos of plants and trees for Art and Science and Nathan has been very busy writing about his birthday celebrations and even making his own guitar. Wow boys!
Abigail has been working so hard on her Maths today. Spelling numbers will be really important when you get to Year 2, so make sure you’re practicing lots now! Well done Abigail, you are a superstar.
Here are some more photos from another super sixth birthday celebration over the weekend! Happy birthday Olivia- I think you and your sisters will definitely make fantastic midwives in the future!
We’ve got another 6 year old in 1M! Nathan had a fantastic birthday yesterday and wanted to show us all his football-themed day! Happy birthday Nathan!
I think we have a future scientist on our hands! Oskar has been doing experiments at home and found a way to blow up his balloon! Hopefully he’ll show us when we’re back at school.
Here is some more fantastic work from Yohan and Eddie! I’m so proud of everything that you’ve been doing over the past few weeks, you’ve all clearly been working very hard. Have a super half term and I’ll see you all very soon! Miss Main x
Yohan has done some wonderful research about Pope Francis. Can you think of any other ways Pope Francis showed he was a follower of Jesus?
Even more wonderful work from Yohan-WOW! He’s been practicing his tricky words and has formed some super sentences.
I was so happy to see Abigail practicing her jumping technique this morning! How have you been keeping fit during lockdown? Remember to check the PE ideas in your learning packs!
I have learned so many facts from Nathan’s poster about London Zoo- I can’t wait to visit when lockdown is over!
Here’s some more fantastic work I received from Yohan over the weekend. Yohan, you are obviously working so hard at home and should be very proud of all the work you have produced. Well done, I think Yohan is definitely the Polar Bear expert of 1M!
Alai wanted to show his writing to all of us. I’m sure you’ll be as impressed as I was- look at those question marks! Someone has really been practicing their handwriting too- keep it up Alai!
Yohan has been very busy with his learning this week. He has really enjoyed the work about Polar Bears. He’s done some fantastic writing and even made his own Polar Bear! Yohan has also been very busy making yummy treats for his family. This week he made honey biscuits and they look DELICIOUS! Watch Yohan’s baking video here- I think we might have a Masterchef in our class. https://photos.app.goo.gl/McoFEAoRUQP9ZX177
Well done to Abigail, Soraiya and Nathan who guessed this week’s song correctly (it was a tricky one!)
Name that tune- May 11th
I just received some AMAZING writing from Yohan. Can you spot the adjectives and noun phrases? If I was a bear, I’d definitely be tempted away by his yummy
I definitely didn’t recognise this writing when I got the picture, I thought I was looking at a KS2 book! Wow Oskar! He has been working so, so hard on his presentation and using tall and falling letters. Keep it up!
We have our very own doctor in 1M!
Well done to these marvellous musicians who have correctly guessed the song...
NAME THAT TUNE! 4th May
Hello from Miss Main- 4th May
We all know how much Steven LOVES art- he’s even making fantastic work during lockdown! Here is his thank you picture for the NHS- can you recognise the flag? The NHS workers are going to be so impressed with all the amazing artwork from 1M that they will be able to see in your windows.
Have a lovely weekend- it will be time to name another song on Monday!
Miss Main x
Good morning 1M!
I hope you're all okay. I wanted to share Yohan's amazing RE work with you- he has created some amazing artwork! Keep up the hard work everyone, I'm so proud of you all xxx
I think we have a future zookeeper in our class. Look at Oskar’s amazing tiger shelter- it even features a real tiger!
I love seeing all your hard work! Nathan got creative today and was practicing using volume. Look at that fantastic handwriting too! Well done Nathan.
Well done to the following superstars who have correctly guessed this week’s song (this one is tricky but I know it’s one of your favourites!) :
I was so happy when I received this super work from Yohan. He has found so many 2D and 3D shapes around the house (more than me!) and also written his favourite story. Wow Yohan, keep up the hard work!
Today I have received more fantastic work from 1M!
Abigail (wearing a beautiful dress! has drawn a fantastic rainbow to display in her window. She wants to say thank you to all the NHS workers.
Olivia has started her work on the London Zoo and has created a map. Look at that lion! She has also used the names of the animal classification groups we learned earlier in the year.
Abigail has been practising her handwriting and has written the beginning of her favourite story. Can you guess what it is?
I love seeing all the work you are doing at home, especially all of the beautiful pictures you are drawing to say thank you to the NHS workers. I'm so happy to see you are still being Ready, Respectful and Safe at home- keep it up! Here is Olivia's photo of her art work. Well done Olivia!
Good morning 1M!
I hope you are all okay and have made a good start on your new learning packs.
I wanted to share with you some fantastic work I received from Nathan!
He has written his own version of his favourite story- 'The Tiger Came To Tea'. He has used conjunctions, adjectives and even found lots of split digraphs. Look at his handwriting- WOW!
Nathan also drew a wonderful rainbow for the NHS to say thank you. I bet there's lots of rainbows all around where you live- have you drawn one too?
Well done to:
for correctly naming the tune!
Hello from Miss Main!
For this challenge, I am going to play you a song on piano and you need to guess what it is. Listen carefully! Email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org
Guess the song!
For this challenge, I would like you to write a story about your favourite thing you have done while you haven't been at School. It might be an activity from our learning pack, or something completely different! I am going to write one of these stories too and I'm going to add them all to our class page so you can see what your friends have been doing. Please send your story to email@example.com
Cannot wait to read your work!
Good morning everyone! My friend sent me a poem this morning and I thought you might like to read it too
It's called The Rainbow Children
The history books will talk of now,
that time the world stood still.
When every family stayed at home
and waved from their window sills
at those they loved but could not hold
because they loved them so.
Yet whilst they did they noticed, all the flowers start to grow.
The sun came out, they can recall
and windows, rainbows filled.
They kicked a football in their yards,
until the night drew in.
They walked each day, but not too close,
that time the world stood still.
When people walked straight down the roads
that once the cards did fill.
They saw that people became ill,
they saw the world was scared.
But whilst the world stood still they saw,
just how much the world cared.
They clapped on Thursdays from their doors,
they cheered for all the brave,
for people who risked their lives,
so others could be saved.
The schools closed down, they missed their friends,
they missed their teachers so.
Their Mums and Dads helped with their work,
their minds continued to grow.
But history books will talk of them,
now adults, fully grown.
Those little boys and girls back then,
the ones that stayed at home.
They'll tell you that they fixed this work,
of all they did fulfill.
The rainbow children building dreams,
they dreamed while time stood still.
I hope you all had a nice weekend and are continuing to look after yourselves.
I'm going to add the links to some of the games we like to play in the classroom, so you can show your adults how to play or play them with your brothers and sisters! Adults- all children know how to play these games, don't worry!
Enjoy and I'm looking forward to seeing how good you are when we're back at school!
I hope you are all well and are looking after yourselves and your families at home!
Hopefully you're enjoying the learning packs that went home with you. This is your chance to show everyone at home what amazing learners you have been in Year 1.
I've got a challenge for you...
Can you count in 2s, 5s AND 10s all the way up to 100?
I can't wait to hear it when we get back!
As well as all of your super learning, this is the perfect chance for you to do something you might not normally have time to do. Maybe you could bake a cake? Or read a story to your baby brother or sister? Why don't you write a diary each day that I can read when we get back to School? I'm really looking forward to sharing all the amazing things you've been doing.
I've been learning lots of new dances, playing lots of songs on the piano and making yummy cakes! Every morning with my brother, I've been doing a PE lesson with Joe Wicks. Maybe you could join us too at 9am? Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
It's lots of fun!
Sending you all lots of love. Keep safe, be Ready, Respectful and Safe and keep washing your hands!

You are all superstars. I will miss you all while we're not all at School together, but I can't wait to hear about all the exciting things you have learned while at home with your family. Keep up all your hard work and I'll see you soon!

Hello from everyone in 1M!
We have had a fantastic year so far in Year 1 and have made so much progress across the entire curriculum. This half term, we have been learning about South America through our whole school topic. We can answer all your questions about Chile! We've really enjoyed learning about all the different animals and especially enjoyed being detectives and learning about how animals camouflage during Science Week! We have been reading The Great Kapok Tree and produced some super story retells of our own. In Maths, we have been looking at measurement and weight - we've got lots we can show you at home!
We're really showing we know how to be Ready, Respectful and Safe and we can't wait to get ready for Year 2 in the coming months!
Hello from everyone in 1M!
We have had a great couple of weeks back at School after the Summer Holidays and we are settling into our new Classroom really well. Miss Main is our teacher this year and we are so lucky to have Miss Chiassaro and Miss Locci helping us every day. We love our new Classroom, which is filled with many different areas including construction, sand and water, working walls, bright displays and a reading corner complete with fairy lights!
Our learning so far has been so impressive! We are working really hard on using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces in our writing and have been independently choosing classroom resources to help us in Maths. Our Topic this term is ‘Artists’, and we have already been learning about Henry Matisse and recreating his work. We cover lots of different subjects in Topic, including Art, Geography, Art and DT so it is always a very exciting day of the week!
We have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday this year, so please make sure (labelled!) PE kits are brought in by Tuesday morning. We also on working on being super readers in Year 1! Children will be read with in School, but it is also so important to complete reading at home, so please do sign and comment in Reading Records.
We’re really enjoying being in Year 1 and we can’t wait to keep you updated with news and photos on our class page.
