Dear Parent/Carer,

As you approach the end of your first two weeks of home-schooling, we thought you deserved a holiday! With the Easter holidays almost upon us, we wanted to say thank you for all you have done to support the school and your children so far. 

Teachers will not be setting any formal learning over the next two weeks and responses via Dojo will be less frequent whilst we endeavour to give school staff a break too.  However, we recognise that you may also be looking for ideas for how to keep your children busy and creative over the coming two weeks, and we know just how talented Cosby families are, so we will be posting some ideas below, for you to dip into and select from. As always, we would love to see your photos and videos, so please do continue to send them to us via Class Dojo and we will share them when we return.

For the time being, all of the Cosby team send you and your family our very best wishes for a happy, safe and healthy Easter.


Mrs Withers and the Cosby Team

Year 1 and Year 2

Due to the recent school closure, home learning activities will be posted here for you to access. It is expected that your child attempts these activities to the best of their ability. The activities posted will be practical where possible but some activities will need to be recorded in some way, e.g. in their home learning exercise book, by photograph or on a computer. 

Don't worry if you are not able to print off the work, they can be done from the computer. Please write the title of the piece you are doing in your home learning book and put everything in there.

Thank you for your continued support.

If you have any questions, please ask Mrs Knox, Miss Gallagher or Miss Potter through Class Dojo messages.

Here are some year 2 handwriting sheets to help practice cursive handwriting at home.

Here are a bank of ideas to help practise spellings. A little practise every day will help them learn the spellings really well. These activities will help make it fun! Hope they are useful!

Year 1 and 2 had a fantastic day learning all about the British Values on Open Day. We loved designing our own pancakes and we then voted for the best one! 

They all looked fabulous! 

Year 1 and 2 enjoyed researching, designing and making their own moon buggies as part of their DT project for our Space theme. We tested them out to see how strong they were!

Year 1 and 2 went for an autumn walk around the village to look for signs of Autumn. We found lots of conkers by the brook and saw lots of fruit and vegetables ready to harvest in the local allotments. They created some brilliant autumn art back in the classrooms.
