A home learning pack has been sent out (this also has targets set from parent consultations) which includes lots of ideas for learning and how to access resources from home. You will also find Purple Mash login details and information on how to access the 2do's which will be set on a daily basis.
Please access the new 'Home Learning' section of the school's website to find a variety of ideas for learning across the curriculum!

Finally from the Year 1 team... Look after yourselves, have fun and keep safe! We can't wait to see all the new learning you will do!
Welcome to Badgers with Miss Yule and Mrs Lennie!
As part of our new topic 'Then and Now' we have explored different events that have happened nationally and locally. We have spent time in the Birthday Garden and looked closely at the history of Berry Brow School. Researching beyond our lifetime Badgers have explored different food from World War II and how VE day was celebrated! Year 1 held a street party in the classroom and baked different food to compare then and now!
Pancake day was a very exciting affair! Badgers practiced their measuring and mixing skills to make pancake batter before choosing toppings to complete their pancakes!
We have had a fantastic half term learning all about art! We have practiced colour making, drawing painting, weaving and even sculpture. Check out some of our brilliant work!
Year 1 had a fantastic visit to Cartwright Hall Art Gallery in Bradford. We had the opportunity to explore photography, work from upcoming artists and an exhibition of David Hockey's work. The trip involved a focus workshop on David Hockney and children practiced their collage skills to recreate his famous piece 'la Plongee'.
In our Talk for Writing lessons we have learnt the story of Golilocks and the Three Bears! We have enjoyed changing the story using new characters and writing instructions on how to make porridge that is just right!
The half term we have been practicing our gymnastic skills in PE. We have learnt how to travel, balance and roll in lots of different ways. Check out some of our skills!
We had two special visitors from Kirklees Libraries join us in school where we learnt all about what empathy means and how we can show it! Everyone got a pair of superpower empathy glasses to help us!
Happy New Year. We hope you had a brilliant holiday and all the staff would like to thank you for the presents we received. Our talk for writing story this half term is Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

We have had a fantastic few weeks settling in to Year 1 and have eagerly started lots of new learning! Badgers have been working hard in morning lessons and we have been busy completing lots of different got to jobs! Let's keep up the good work
To introduce our new topic: Our School in our community, Year 1 went on an adventure walk around our local area in Berry Brow. We had lots of fun exploring and discussed the human and physical features within our area.
During Talk for writing we have been learning the story of The Three Little pigs and creating actions! Miss Yule is very impressed with how well Badgers have remembered the actions and we can’t wait to perform the story to grown-ups later in the term!
We have enjoyed re-telling the Three Little Pigs story using puppets and during our afternoon time Badgers have built houses from Lego to test if the big bad wolf could blow them down!
Got to jobs
Badgers have loved exploring new jobs and have begun to take responsibility for their own learning and job sheet; making sure each job is ticked off to earn their 5 dojo points!
We have been learning more about our community and the people that live in it. This week we have explored different jobs within our community and talked about what we want to be when we grow up!
