The Canal & River Trust are  excited to introduce a new resources ‘bundle’ as part of our digital learning programme – designed to keep children engaged in learning and active whilst at home.
The ‘Corridor for Nature’ bundle provides everything children need to research, design and build a canal-themed habitat. It’s ideal for curriculum-linked study, or as an exciting holiday project.

A lovely story to share with children:

We hope you all had a lovely half term and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine! Please continue to read and do daily phonics sessions with your child using the resources below. This week we would like the children to keep a  Well-being diary of what they get up to every day. We have provided a format for this but if you don’t have access to a printer please use the handwriting books which we sent home. For those of you possibly returning to school next week please bring these with you to share with your group. If you are not returning please forward your child’s to the school office so we can share them with everyone.


Please share this with your child if they are returning to school.Coronavirus-back-to-school 

Over the next two weeks we would like you to work on understanding capacity. Use resources you have at home to compare and order capacity. You can also work through the powerpoints and capacity document to help you.


Presentation – Comparing Capacities


Good morning, a big thank you to all the parents who have been sending the children’s work to the We have loved seeing your maps and information on Redditch and your work on time.

If you haven’t sent you maths assessment yet or your work on Redditch please do this asap. For those of you that have completed all the work so far we would now like you to make a ‘Time capsule’ to capture everything you have been up to during the last six weeks. You could decorate a tube for everything to go inside. Please click on the pdf to see all the things you can put into it.

Time Capsule Sheets


This is a lovely book you may want to share with your children about why we are having to stay at home.


Coronavirus Information For Children

Good Morning lovely year 1 children, we are missing you so much but are really pleased to see the wonderful work that you are doing. Please continue to do the topic work below if you haven’t completed it already. This half term the children would have been learning about time. Starting by ordering events in time order, days of the week, months of the year, reading and writing the time to the hour and half hour. You can do this by learning songs to help you know your days of the week and months of the year in the correct order. I have also included a template so you can make your own clock at home to help you.

To start our new term we would like the children to complete a Maths Assessment. You can read all the questions to your child and they can have extra paper, a ruler and objects to help them count.


Now our new topic is ‘Around the World in 80 Days,’ for this week we would like you to start by doing a little research about Redditch.
