Hello Everyone smiley


We hope you have enjoyed the lovely sunshine this weekend. Your reports were delivered on Friday and we hope you all enjoyed reading them.

This week we are thinking about the move from Class R to Year One and what we would like to be when we grow up. There are some activities in each section of our home learning area. 

Fingers crossed for some more sunshine soon.


Lots of love 

Miss Mooney & Miss Hayton xxxxx

Hello Class R Lovelies heart

We hope you are all still safe and well! 

This week your work is about our friend 'The Colour Monster'. The story can be read to you- scroll down on this page a little bit and click on the link. Your activities are in the home learning sections.

We'd love to see photos of your work on Class Dojo.

Stay yellow for happy!

Love Miss Mooney & Miss Hayton xxxx



This week, your work is related to the story 'Naughty Bus' by Jan and Jerry Oke. We love this story. Perhaps you could recreate your own 'Naughty Bus' story at home? We would love to see photos or a film of that!!

Don't forget to send us pictures of your work on Dojo. 

We miss you and love you lots,

Miss Mooney and Miss Hayton xxx 


Monday 22nd June 


Hello lovely children and families,


We are still missing your little faces and we can't wait until we can see you again in school. Hopefully the sun will come out for us this week! We have been thinking about you all and the things we remember most about you. The Colour Monster story is still one of our favourites so we have put a link below so you can enjoy the story at home together. 

Remember, if there is anything you need we are only on the end of a Class Dojo message!


Stay smiley smiley


Lots of Love 

Miss Mooney & Miss Hayton xxxxx


P.s. This week's work is all about 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and it is ready for you to print off and complete.

Morning Children, 

We have uploaded your next set of activities in the 'home learning' area below. We are still missing you so much! 

Have a go at the Go Noodle mood walk. It's important that we try to understand our feelings, especially in the current situation. It's okay to have bored days, frustrated days, sad days BUT we hope you have have lots of happy and excited days too! 

Love you all,

Miss Mooney and Miss Hayton xxx

Hello Children, 

We hope you're all keeping safe and well. We thought that some of us might be back in school this week but a team of clever doctors have decided that it isn't quite safe enough yet. We want to keep you as safe as possible, so until the time is right, it is better for you to be at home with your families.

This term is usually one of our favourite and most busy terms. We would normally be welcoming our new starters into our classrooms and you guys would get the chance to show them around. We know that you would've been amazing at that! 

We would also be working really hard on writing simple sentences, reading and number calculations. Perhaps you could have a go at writing some sentences with your families- remembering capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

We still think about you every single day and we miss you all so much. 

Keep in touch on Dojo- it really makes us smile. 

This weeks work is based on the brilliant Julia Donaldson story 'The Snail and the Whale' and it's all in the home learning area below.

We love you lots. 

Be good and be happy, 

Miss Mooney and Miss Hayton xxxx 



18th May 2020

Hello Children,

We hope you and your families are still keeping safe.

Last week, we gave you lots of work to be getting through. This week we thought we would do something slightly different. We have three tasks for you...

1. We thought it would be nice for you to help our new starters (who would usually be starting settling in sessions) and write them a sentence about why they will LOVE coming to Shakespeare school. Get your families to send us a photograph on Dojo and we will send them to the new children.

2. See if you can write numbers 0-30. 

3. Make a picture out of things from your garden (sticks, stones, daisies) and send us a photograph. 

We can't wait to see what you get up to. 

Take care, stay safe and be good.

Lots of love from, 

Miss Mooney and Miss Hayton. xxxx   


11th May 2020

Hello again, 

Another week has passed us by and we're still missing you just as much- in fact, even more so!

We have put some more activities for you to do at home into the 'Home Learning' area. 

Remember- stay safe, be happy and be good for your families. 

Dojo us if you have any questions or you want to show us what you've been up to. 

Love you lots, 

Miss Mooney and Miss Hayton xxx 


Hello Lovely Children and Families,

We are still thinking of you all and hope you are keeping safe, well and SMILING!

It would have been a lovely afternoon for our annual May Day celebrations and we wish we were all dressed up in our beautiful little pink dresses and bow ties. This time next year we will be able to celebrate properly.

We are missing our little lovelies so much and love to get messages and photos of work on Class Dojo. As we said in our last letter, we are looking at growth this term. We hope your beans are growing well... It would be lovely to see some pictures of you and your beanstalk on Dojo! 

There is a famous traditional tale about a beanstalk and a boy called Jack, so we thought this would be a good story to use for next weeks activities. Have a go at as many of the activities as you like, but the most important thing is that you all stay as happy and stress-free as possible :) 

We have put links to the activities in the home learning sections.


We hope to see you soon.

Lots of Love 

Miss Mooney and Miss Hayton xxxxxxx



We would like you to take part in an event that our very own Coach Mike and his leaders are organising.


They would like us to write a letter to a future generation person or even their older selves talking about what it was like to be a child during the lock down times. They might write about the new skills they have learnt to do (cooking, learning to ride a bike, exercising more etc) they could talk about their daily routines and what they have been up to, they could write about learning from this experience and learning not to take things for granted. They could also include what was on the tv, what the government asked us to do and maybe finish with some advice on how to cope with the situation. 


When the children have finished their letters they can be sent in to ...


where there is a chance that some of the players at FTFC might read out your letters.  


Also the exciting news is that we have decided to go ahead with a back garden / or empty space sports day which will take place on Friday 22nd May. If you would like to take part, all you have to do is email Mr Clarke at to confirm your entry. At a later date you will receive a sports pack via email telling you what to do on the Friday 22nd May. After that, it is over to you guys to send in your photos and videos on that day. All will be explained in the pack fully. For now, I just need to know if you are taking part? 



How are you all? We hope you are staying safe, keeping busy and feeling HAPPY (that's the most important bit!!!).

Thank you for all the photographs and messages we are receiving through Dojo. We love seeing your little faces. We are both busy home schooling our own children and working in school on certain days. Liddy, Noah and Finley have lots of really difficult maths to's hurting our EYFS teacher brains!  We love our own children lots but we are definitely missing being in our classrooms with you! 

Last week we sent you enough work to last two weeks BUT if you would like anymore, your family can send us a message. 

We have an extra little challenge for you this week... 

Please draw a picture of something you are missing about school. It can be anything. When you've finished it, send it to your teacher on Dojo. Can't wait to see them! 

We have put a few more links to websites in the 'home learning' area below. 

If you need anything, you know where we are.

Lots of love,

Miss Mooney and Miss Hayton. xxx

P.S BBC are doing daily lessons. There isn't an area for EYFS however, if you want a challenge then you could have a look at some Year 1 lessons. 

We are currently taking part in the Lancashire School Games challenges that are taking place. You can find the information @wyreandfyldesgo on both twitter and facebook. Send your videos in when you have completed the challenge. There are prizes from the school games organisation for the best of any challenge and also the most videos sent in. Below is a list of what is coming up. Let's get going!

Hello our beautiful children,

We hope you enjoyed Easter as much as you possibly could. We are really enjoying seeing all the work you have done on Dojo....keep it coming! 

In the 'home learning folders' below we have added some new challenges. Please remember though, your happiness is key. Play lots, enjoy the sunshine and stay as positive as you can... we're another day closer to all this being over! 

At this time of year we would normally begin looking at life cycles. We enjoy the story 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle. We have shared a link to the story in the Literacy Home Learning folder below. 

See if you can find some caterpillars in your garden....

As always, keep in contact via Dojo! 

We miss you like mad, 

Miss Mooney and Miss Hayton :-)

Hello again, 

We hope you are all okay? It's very difficult to describe to you how it feels knowing that we won't be seeing you soon. We are missing you so much. It's like we've worked hard together on a giant jigsaw and now the last few pieces are missing. :-(

We hope you have enjoyed playing at home with your families and perhaps you have had a bit of time to complete some of the challenges we sent home with you last week. Has your bean started growing yet? Remember to keep a bean diary (the one we sent you). 

Keep practising reading, writing sentences and doing some adding and subtracting. You can send us photographs of the activities you do on dojo, we have LOVED the photos we've received so far!

I've put some links below for home learning websites. 

Love you all lots, 

keep smiling, 

wash your hands really well and be good for your mummy and daddy,

Miss Mooney ans Miss Hayton xxx 


Hello lovely families, 

Tonight, we have sent home two weeks worth of work. On the parent section of this website there is a Lancashire County Council document that contains lots of different activities and websites for you to try at home with your children. We hope you find this useful. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us on Dojo.

Much love to you all at this difficult time,

Miss Mooney and Miss Hayton xx

Here is a parent guide to the early learning goals- these are the end of year targets for children in the EYFS.

We're loving learning about money and acting out real life money problems.

Miss Mooney brought a narcissus tete a tete into school and we've been having a go at drawing it and blending pastels to create the colour and shading.

We've been investigating our skeleton!

We had a great day exploring how to make pancakes. Mr Wolf isn't too good at reading and writing but luckily we are! We helped him to read the recipe and write the instructions.

We loved inviting our grandparents into school for a 'Valentine Afternoon Tea'. They listened to the choir, ate biscuits, drank tea and then had the opportunity to visit our classroom! We made our grandparents a gift!

Your children will be bringing this sheet home soon. The idea is that you practise reading these words together as often as possible. These words cannot be 'sound out', so therefore must be learnt through sight. As soon as your child solidly recognises each word, they can colour in the box. If your child colours all the boxes in- they can bring the sheet back into school to show us!

Our first group of children enjoyed their visit to Welbeck House. The residents were thrilled to see us all again!

We can count to three in Mandarin...

We celebrated Chinese New Year! We ribbon danced, played instruments, tried food, wore traditional dress, made decorations and had a dragon dance. Great fun!

We're back to it- music, writing, learning about the world, pattern making, PE, science...

HAPPY NEW YEAR! We can't wait to get learning...

Spring Newsletter 2020

Christmas went a little bit like this...


Lovely literacy!

Maths, maths, marvellous maths!

Halloween and Bonfire Night fun!!

We found a mysterious key on the carpet! It belonged to a farmer who needed to harvest his crops. We decided to help him, so we chose a Farmer and wife and they brought in some vegetables from the fields. We looked at and discussed all the vegetables and decided to make vegetable soup. We explored healthy food and the importance of a a balanced diet. We also discussed why we need to wash our hands before preparing food and we practised cutting up vegetables carefully.

We had a wonderful time on our autumn walks.

Lots of focus on our prime areas of learning but we have also started to look at early number and early literacy development.
