Mrs Darbyshire / Mrs Stanhope

Hello Badgers and welcome to your class page! Here you will find activities to help you carry on learning at home. Mrs Darbyshire & Mrs Stanhope are so proud of the progress you have made so far this year and know you will carry on being the very best you can be at home. 

We miss you lots, and know this may be a worrying time for some of you; hopefully this link may help explain to your children a little better about what is going on in the world currently -


***From Monday 20th April we will be putting 3 weekly activities for you on to the app/web page 'SeeSaw'.  This is something your child has used in class and will make it much easier for us to communicate with you all and help everyone! 

All you need to do is download the app or search for it on the internet. You will receive a text before Monday with a special code to help you get onto your child's activities.***

A little message: This week’s theme will be about moving up to your new class and having lots of fun carrying out your own ‘Mini Olympic themed Sports day’! I can’t believe that this will be the last home school learning post until September. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication at home. We have been so proud of all of your hard work and have really loved seeing all of your amazing learning on Seesaw over the past few months.

What can you do at home?






Maths for the week: Take part in the sports day activities and vote for your favourites.

You can either use the cards on Seesaw, make up your own activities or use the video to decide what activities you want to do.

You could then vote which was the favourite and create a pictogram on JIT. You could also record the winner, keep score, calculate totals and use timers – lots of opportunities to use maths!


Moving to Y2 and Y3 Skills


This week have a look at the checklist for things that will help you next year. 


Have a little look - some things may be useful to work on over the Summer e.g. key words. Some things may just be reminders…

This activity does not have to completed on Seesaw but is there to help you when thinking about returning to school in September.  If you want to choose a skill to work on this week then post photos and videos in the usual way.





Mrs Darbyshire and I have loved being your teachers this year and have lots of amazing memories from this year. We hope you all do too! On your Seesaw activity, you will find a fact file about your new teacher. Your new teacher will either be Mrs James or Mrs Idris. We know you will love being in their classes and we have so much fun planned for September already!


1. Monday: Read the information about your new teacher. There is a little fact file about your new teacher – read the information and answer some of the questions. How exciting!


2. Wednesday: Respond to your new teacher by making your own mini fact file. Now that you have read the information, make your fact file and I will send it onto your new teacher.


Foundation Phase Sports Day


Watch the video and pause to have a look at some of the activities that you can take part in.

Once you have decided which activities you would like to do then start planning your day.

Think about:

  • Your activities that you want to do
  • Where you want to have your sports day?
  • Who will take part?
  • What healthy snack you will have
  • How will you reward your efforts?

Another activity on Seesaw will be to: Design your own sports’ kit to wear in an Olympic themed Sport Day.


  • What colours will you choose?
  • Can you design a logo to put on

your sports’ kit?

Some of you may have missed a holiday this year or wanted to go out and explore but couldn’t go anywhere due to the virus. So, we are having a ‘Staycation’ this week, we will be having a camp out in school and at home. If you have a tent – put it up and pretend to go camping as we explore the outdoors like a wilderness explorer! (But watch out, there may be some bears about!)

You have been busy learning about subtraction. Could you practise giving some change and taking away with the coins?

Watch Mrs Darbshire’s video to help you with this.

3. Friday: Hold a sentence or two! We will post a video of how to write a postcard and help your child with writing a postcard.





WALT: create our own staycation








Set up your own campsite at home!

1. Monday: Think about what you are going to set up at home.

Understand emotions and link them to adjectives


Day 1 – Monday: thinking about emotions

For this first session, watch the video clip and then identify the emotions and think of times you may feel these ways.

Watch the video all about adjectives. Use the characters to think of different adjectives to describe them.


Day 3 – Friday: Writing task – hold a sentence

This is your writing task. We can now write about the characters you have met. Watch the video and practise ‘hold the sentence’ in your head. Use this strategy to write about the characters and about times when you felt happy/sad, etc.

This week we are learning to:

Recognise our emotions

Listen to the story: 

 Silly Billy - Anthony Brown 


It has been a strange time over the past couple of months with lots of rules and restrictions in place for our safety. 

Some children may be feeling a little worried or anxious about leaving a parent to go back to school or staying with someone else if a parent/carer must go back to work.


Like the Silly Billy Story, have a chat with your child to check if they are worried about anything. It may be something small that is bothering them. If they have got a worry, make a little worry doll or box out of things you have in the house.

If you think that they are very happy, but you know someone who is very worried then perhaps you could make a worry doll for them or have it ready for when those worries may appear when they think about returning to school in September.

Daily Must do’s:

Log onto Oxford Owl and practise reading

Sounds – 5-minute sound practise when you can

Number writing 

Letter writing 

Sum dog to practise maths skills

Listen to a story – either from your teacher or from someone at home 

Keep active – go outside and do some exercise 

Talk about your emotions daily   



A little message:  We are starting something new this week, we will be posting some videos throughout the week instead of just posting the planning on the Sunday. You can see what the plan for the week is above but will be posting videos on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with activities to complete.
