Cedar Class (Y1)
Hello and Welcome to Cedar Class!
We do hope you had a lovely Autumn break, spending time with your families & making new memories
We can't wait to see you all safely back in school, but just like last year we must all look after each other, maintaining social distancing, washing our hands regularly and reminding the grown ups to wear a face covering whilst in the school grounds!
Miss Varney and Miss Ching still encourage us to read at home most nights, we still can't send school reading books home, but all children have an Epic Book and Active Learn account where they can access a wealth of books covering all genres
All children have access to a wealth of online platforms - we will continue to update these. The main ones we use in school (and the children can access at home) are Purple Mash (where there are weekly 'to dos' for the children to complete), Active Learn, Mathletics, TT Rock Stars and Epic Books. If your child is self isolating, in addition to the online resources you can pick up a paper copy of home learning materials from our school office, or contact Miss Varney via Class Dojo for further support
Class Dojo remains our most used platform in school and at home - a perfect way for you to communicate with us and vice versa. We particularly love to see pictures of what activities the children do at home. You can also see many pictures and videos of the children in school - fabulous in the absence of our families being able to join us in school

This term we are going to design some new equipment for our playground - this week we are going to start by drawing a map of our playground - can you remember what it looks like? Draw your own with as much detail as possible)
Welcome to our Home Learning page, below you will find links to websites which children can access during isolation.
Teachers will communicate via Class Dojo and work will be set on Google Classroom or Purple Mash. It is expected that completed work will be uploaded on Google Classroom or Purple Mash and photographs shared on Class Dojo. Paper packs are available on request and these must be returned to school once work is completed.
Children will be given passwords for the platforms the school uses ( https://www.purplemash.com & https://classroom.google.com/ ) if you are experiencing any difficulties with logging on contact school on 0151 256 4065.
These websites are regularly accessed during the school day and your child should be familiar with the content.
