Mrs Fitchew's Dressing up/Role Play Challenge!
Year Wonderful, oh my, you certainly do not make it easy for me when it comes to picking a winner for our class challenge!
As always, you have amazed me with your outstanding efforts by getting into character, using your fabulous imaginations and working extremely hard in putting your ideas and dressing up outfits together to support your role-play ideas.
You inspired me in so many ways!
Drum roll please!!!!
The winner of this weeks Dressing Up Challenge goes to ....
Imogen for her very imaginative sea/role play theme.
Well done to Imogen and everyone who took part for our wonderful and creative dressing up costumes.
Another week has flown by and it's almost the Easter holidays. There are a couple of 2dos on Purple Mash for you to have a go at today. I had great fun with some of the castles activities.
Don't forget there are lots of songs and activities if you click on the music star and some great challenges on Charanga.
Harry S has started a new blog to entertain us and keep us laughing with his jokes so do check the 'Class Jokes' blog on Purple Mash.
Have a great day everyone!
P.S. What do you call a dinosaur who is sleeping?
A dino - snore!
Make myself laugh!!
Happy Thursday Year One!
Keep in touch on Purple Mash. There is a computing activity to have a go at today.
Why not try to be creative and make Easter cards?
Have a great day!
Good Morning Year One!
Please find a link to more prayers for children on the R.E. activities.
The time has come for another challenge from the one and only Mrs Fitchew...
Mrs. Fitchew’s Dressing Up Challenge!
Using Simple Props From Home For Imaginative Play
Dressing in costume and engaging in roleplay is a great way for children to boost their creativity. A fun way to engage in play with siblings or any family member.
You can be anyone you want to be, mix and match different items together. Sort through your cupboards and have a think about simple things you could use from home that can be used as interesting props. You could use a kitchen colander that would make a great helmet or a wooden spoon that could be a sword or magic wand. Fabric for a cape…a super hero comes to mind ! Find a piece of paper/card to make a Pirates hat. LARGE cardboard boxes are good if you have any around, they make a great ride in a car. Ooh... what could you be if you found something sparkly and glittery ? Find a hat, even a funny wig, wear a pair of your Mum’s high heels and pretend you’re going to be a rock star. :)
So take a look around you, can you find items that support your dressing up play ideas and encourage you to take an idea further ?
Be as WILD and WACKY as you like with this!
Get into character and go on an adventure.
I’m really looking forward to seeing your blogs and please post lots of photos as you put together your own fabulous dressing up ideas that will hopefully inspire lots of wonderful imaginative play for you to enjoy this week.
Have fun with this challenge!
Love From, Mrs. Fitchew x
Good Morning Year WONDERFUL!
Who is ready for week two at home?
This would have been our last week before the Easter holidays and so we would have been doing lots of Easter activities in school this week.
Don't forget to continue with your diary this week. I'm sure you will appreciate reading your diaries when all is back to normal!
I haven't seen too many Easter wreaths on Purple Mash this week so do have a go at that and tell your mums and dads all about the Easter story. Don't forget to post photos. I love seeing them!
I will be adding a few things on Purple Mash this week but you will hopefully still have some things in your packs to do too. Don't forget you can also use Phonics Play, My Maths and Oxford Owls for other activities too.
Who will be joining me in the morning Joe Wicks workout? My children all love to do that to get them going in the morning!
I am already excited about the week ahead!
Let's do this!!
Well done to George and to everyone for the incredible baking!
It's Friday, it's Friday, it's Friday ....
Our first week of being at home is nearly done!
It is usually our topic day on a Friday so if you have some spare time you can do a Castles activity. Have a look at Purple Mash for ideas.
Don't forget we still have our Headteacher's and reading awards as well as an Artist of the Week so keep your eyes peeled for that!
Have another fabulous day and once again, I look forward to the messages!
Happy Thursday Year One!
I can't believe it's Thursday already! I hope you're having a great time at home. Keep looking after everyone!
Don't forget as well as the Joe Wicks workout which I shall be doing at 9 (me legs are really aching!), you can also listen to David Walliams reading his stories on his website at 11am. I shall need that time to recover!
Miss Rusz has also been busy coming up with lots of active ideas that you can try at home and outside. Let's make the most of this beautiful weather.
There are a couple of 2dos on Purple Mash if you'd like to try them. We usually have computing on a Thursday so you could have a go at that.
Please keep up with the messaging and Mrs Fitchew is still very excited to see your efforts in her 'Star Baker' competition! Blossom and Padme have made some amazing biscuits already!
Mrs Gillett is also very impressed with all the art work!!
You are all doing a fabulous job at working at home and if we haven;t heard from you please get in touch on Purple Mash so we know you are all doing ok.
Have a great day Year One. We miss you in school!
Good Morning Year One!
It's already Wednesday!
I have loved looking at your pictures and photos and also reading the messages on Purple Mash. It's so lovely to keep in touch and be able to message and encourage each other too.
In your packs you had work to do for the week so try and carry on with some of those. Do try to plant your sunflower. The weather is so beautiful, I'm sure you are spending lots of time outside.
I have been loving the Joe Wicks workout and all of my children have been joining in with it at home too. I hope your mums and dads are too! We'll be keeping fit with him again at 9am.
There are a couple of 2dos on purple mash if you feel like you want to have a go. I will add things on for you just in case you need something to keep you busy!
Usually on a Wednesday we would be doing R.E. in school. You had an Easter wreath in your pack to make. I would love to see photos of your finished Easter wreath on our blog too.
Mrs Fitchew has been busy thinking of a challenge for you. We will add a blog for it too on purple mash. Have a go if you can although we are very aware that baking ingredients are difficult to come by! Mrs Fitchew is no doubt jumping up and down with excitement at seeing the photos!

Tuesday 24.3.2020- A message from Mrs Cracknell
Good morning year wonderful! Welcome to day 2 of home school. It was so lovely to see what some of you got up to yesterday on the class blog.
Yesterday Mrs McLoughlin posted a message for the week ( see below) and last week you were sent home a home activity pack with lots of tasks to complete. I've added the Science and Maths activities below too. The 'make a clock' activity requires a split pin but if you don't have one don't worry, you could always use blue tack instead. There are also a few activities on purple mash for you to check out too! Remember to keep posting on the blog, I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
Have a lovely day
