Summer Term - Year 1 Learning from Home Activities - week beginning 13th July 2020

Hi everyone,

So, here we are - the last week of the summer term and the last week of Year 1 for your children! Well done, keep going - we're nearly there!

Last week the children at school had a chance to learn about seeds and how they grow with Bea (who has transformed the old nursery playground to an amazing living classroom!) She showed us how to mix compost and top soil together to make the perfect planting environment for our radish seeds. We have photos of our green fingered children below along with a rather tasty tin of Tiger Food...

Shout Outs:



Last week we heard all about Danny's awful day as school. Let's see what happens next as Miss Becker brings you Chapter 13 - 'Friday'.

Now we know the Home Learning comes to an end this week, but don't worry - we won't leave Danny there! We have been busy recording the remaining chapters and they will be available on a special Year 1 'Danny the Champion of the World' blog from Monday 20th July.

Hola year 1! This week we will be learning about the different countries in the world that speak Spanish. Click on the link below to find out more...


We are aware that you have all been very busy raising funds for the school via a Virtual Summer Fair Campaign. We would just like to say a massive thank you for all your efforts and support - it is greatly appreciated by us and everyone in the Fircroft Family. Please see a message below from the PTA about this fundraising event.


Virtual Summer Fair Campaign – Message from the PTA

The Virtual Summer Fair Campaign kicked off last Wednesday with various events taking place over the weekend.  Thank you to everyone for holding and attending these events and for so many generous donations.   We've loved seeing the photos of the fun you've been having! We are blown away to have received a phenomenal £3,081 in donations so far, meaning we are already 60% of the way to our £5,000 target! How amazing our Fircroft Family and Friends are! 

Events are still in the pipeline and you can let us know your plans/activities on

We'd love to acknowledge your children's enthusiasm and participation. Let us know here how they have participated so we can thank them. 

You can also donate books, CDs and DVDs via the link on individual fundraisers pages.  For ease of reference you can read more about the campaign here -  It’s truly remarkable what we have already achieved so far by coming together.  How amazing it would be if we can push through and race past the £5,000 target! As ever, thank you for your continued support.
