Mr Sears

If you are self isolating due to Covid 19 then here are some fun learning activities you could do with your child.

PE Activities

At St Oswald’s we recognise the importance of keeping children active during these difficult times.  The children won’t only benefit physically but it will support mental health.

Our local School Games network and Active Derbyshire have been working together to create and publish a weekly programme of activities to support families over the next few weeks. 

The weekly activities will be sport themed and include golf, football, tennis, orienteering, athletics, cricket, gymnastics, boccia, netball and badminton.  All activities have been developed so everyone can have ago using equipment found in the home and in whatever space you have available.  Each week we will update the class pages with the new programme for that week.

Year One Spellings




Mr. Sears Class

Our topic this term has been ‘Bright Lights Big City’ we have learnt all about cities and compared the countryside to the city. We have developed our knowledge about London, the landmarks and it’s history learning about The Great Fire of London.

We have baked bread, and written instructions, built houses for our Great Fire of London street and tested materials to find out which would be the best one to build Big Ben or London Bridge. we have even performed London’s burning to our families!

Year One made their own cities using construction materials. See if you can spot some London landmarks.

The children enjoyed our visit from Jennifer Jones (the queens advisor). She answered their questions about London and also stayed for a tea party!
In the Autumn term, our topic was all about the weather. The children loved our snowstorm in a jar science experiment.

Below is our topic overview for Spring term 1.

Bright Lights Big City

Below is our curriculum map for the whole year, it highlights what the children are learning at each point in their year.
