Collective Worship day 8
Collective Worship - Tuesday 2nd March
Our habit today is 'praying'. You can look at the PowerPoint or watch a video of the Collective Worship here Collective Worship Day 7 .
Tuesday 2nd March

Here are your lessons for today - don't forget to submit your work on Teams or upload photos to Tapestry so we can see what you have done.

Bake Off Winners
Well done to everyone who took part in our competition. It was very difficult to choose a winner as each adult in Reception and Year 1 would have voted for a different bake! We asked some older children to vote for their favourite to choose the winner and there were two joint winners.... Althea for her Pigs in Mud cake and Samarth for his Solar System cake. Well done everyone!

Monday 1st March

Here is your work for today. Don't forget to look on Teams or Tapestry to see the videos of your teachers talking about the learning. Today's Collective Worship is the story of 'The Temptation of Jesus'.

Monday 1st March - Week 2
Good morning! We hope you had a lovely week in the sunshine. Here is our timetable for this week. The week of remote learning will run like all other weeks have with your child's work being uploaded here and also on Teams and Tapestry. The only difference this week is that there will be NO live meetings on Thursday (4th) as the teachers in school will be using Thursday to prepare for returning to school next week. 
We will be working during the week on preparing the classroom and children for returning to school. If there is anything that you would like to talk to us about before next Monday, or if you have any questions about the reopening then please contact us via e mail or Tapestry.
Have a lovely week
Ms Crisp and Miss Berry

Spring Term 2 - February 2021
Hello! We hope you have had a lovely relaxing week off and you are ready for your home learning this week. The photos that you have been sending in for our Bake Off competition have been amazing... well done to everyone who has taken part. 

We know that we have got at least two weeks of home learning this half term and everything will run in the same way that it did last half term. There will be two meetings on Teams in the morning (one at 9:30am and one at 10:30am)  where we will explain the work for the day and you can ask any questions that you might have. We will then have another meeting at 2:15pm every day where you can show off some of the things you have done during the day and chat to your friends about what you have enjoyed... again the staff will be able to answer any questions you have or explain anything that hasn't been clear. 

Phonics  - if your child was working in the Phase 3 or Phase 5 groups last half term then you are still working in the same groups. If your child was in the Phase 4 group last half term then they have now moved to Phase 5 as Phase 4 is a short Phase. Their work is called 'Phase 4 to 5'. Just ask in the meeting if you are not sure which work to do. 

Please remember the messages we have regularly sent home about home learning .... we know it is hard and we know some parents/carers are working from home themselves at the same time. Please try to join the live meetings each day and to do as much work as you can, but do not worry if you can't complete every activity every day - we understand!  If you need any help with anything, or you want to discuss anything then please do not hesitate to contact us, 
We have a lovely afternoon planned each Friday ... we have called this Feel Good Friday! We can't wait to share the activities with you!

Stay safe everyone, 
Ms Crisp and Miss Berry 

Week 1 - Monday 22nd February

Half Term Fun 
Well done everyone for your super efforts of home learning over the last 6 weeks. Ms Crisp and Miss Berry are so impressed with how well you have adapted to learning at home and from the work you have been producing. It's time to switch off now and have a relaxing week with your family. Don't forget to have your celebration of home learning that you planned in our last RE lesson!

Here are some ideas that might keep you busy. 

Reception / Year 1 Bake Off Competition
Have a go at baking something over half term and upload your photos to Tapestry. You might like to try buns, a cake, biscuits, sausage rolls, scones, pancakes .... you choose! 
Or, look out on Tapestry on Monday 22nd February for the photos of the staff Bake Off Competition and you can be the judge!

Remote Learning - Week 4 (Monday 25th January)

The learning for Year 1 children is uploaded to Teams and Tapestry everyday, If you do not have your login details for these websites then please contact Ms Crisp jessica.crisp@hunsletstmarys.co.uk or Miss Berry melissa.berry@hunsletstmarys.co.uk. Or, you can phone the school office to send a message to us (0113 2717204). 
This is the timetable for our lessons this week. As today is Monday that means it is time to have a go at your spellings from last week. Let us know how many you get right. 

Each day we have live Teams meetings at 9:30am, 10:30am and 2:15pm. It would be great to see as many children as possible at these meetings. 
Below you will find links to the work for Monday, but please check Tapesty or Teams too. When you have completed your work you can send it to us to look at. 
Have a lovely week and please get in contact if you need anything,

Microsoft Teams -  Year 1 Live Sessions with the Teacher

From Monday 11th January Year 1 children will be able to access live sessions with their teacher everday at 9:30am or 10:30am (you can choose which is the best time for you) and the again at 2:15pm.

Miss Berry will be in school tomorrow (Thursday) and I will be in school on Friday if you would like to call us too

Thank you
Ms Crisp 

The expectations from our Remote Learning Policy are:

During the live sessions children will be expected to:

  • ‘attend’ each session remotely and keep up with the work set. The only exception is if the student is unwell, in which case parents will be expected to report the illness and absence to the class teacher via email.
  • be appropriately dressed for ‘work’ (not uniform BUT not night wear etc)
  • have equipment ready in order to carry out the tasks set
  • behave appropriately and respond appropriately to the teacher
  • work on the tasks set on the website at other times


Parents will be expected, wherever possible, to:

  • provide an appropriate email address and upload necessary software
  • ensure that their child accesses the live interactive session
  • alert school as early as possible if there are any access issues e.g. linked to hardware, software or WiFi
  • provide an environment for their child that is conducive to being able to focus on the session
  • provide an appropriate level of supervision for their child:
  • Reception to Year 3: Adult supervision throughout the whole session to support their child’s engagement in the session.
  • Year 4: Adult supervision to ensure their child has logged on and is able to access the session, then monitor engagement throughout
  • Years 5 and 6: Adult supervision where needed, but not essential when their child is able to be more independent.
  • avoid being heard or seen throughout the session
** Year 1 Parents / Carers **

The Tapestry website keeps crashing today, staff are unable to access it too.
We will send messages via the school website if it is not up and running again soon. 
Kind Regards, 
Ms Crisp
