Weekly challenge

Hello year 1!

Each week we would like for you to write a letter to Miss Good or Miss Hindhaugh.

In your letter you could write about your week, what you have been doing or just anything that you would like to tell us. We hope that by doing this we can all stay in contact and you can keep practicing your writing. Once you have wrote your letter, make sure that you take a picture and email it to for your teacher to see.

Remember to check the website weekly, because we will also be writing letters to you. 


  • Use your full stops and capital letters, you could even try to use exclamation marks and question marks.
  • Try to keep your writing neat and make sure that your letters are the correct way round.
  • You could even practice linking your sentences cohesively, like we been learning at school.


Good luck and we look forward to hearing from you.


Please find the letters from us below. 

Miss Good


Hello 1G smiley

Each week I will be writing a letter to you all and I hope that you will all write a letter back to me!

I hope that you are all well and that you are behaving for your adult at home. I have missed seeing all of your smiley faces at school. But hopefully we will all see each other soon! Thank you to the children that have sent me some work that they have been doing at home. It put a smile on my face looking at all the wonderful things that you have been doing.

This week I have been working from home and I recorded a story for you all to watch. It took me a very long time to record because I kept dropping my phone! I have been spending a lot of time with my dog, Bailey. We have been on lots of long walks, which has been nice because the weather has been beautiful. At the weekend I watched a lot of Disney+, whoops! I watched Frozen, which I know you all love. I even watched Jungle Book, which I have not watched for a very longtime. I have also been speaking to Mrs Sheehan and she is also missing you all lots! I better leave it there, otherwise Miss Hindhaugh won't have any space to write her letter. 

I look forward to hearing from you all and have a good rest of your week.

Miss Good 


Miss Hindhaugh


Hi 1H! I hope you are all safe and staying inside or in your garden. I am working from home and going into school some days. Some of you may have seen my story on facebook and it was lovely to see some of your adults comment! It made me miss you all lots. 

Like Miss Good I have been watching disney+, I am currently having a Pirates of the Caribbean marathon. I will end up turning into Jack Sparrow! Each day I try to have a daily walk around the area I live in. Somebody has put up posters of Where's Wally, so I have been trying to find them all. I have only managed to find 5/10, I will have to look harder tomorrow.

I look forward to seeing your letters, please ask your adults to take a photo and send it to by email to the school office if possible. 

Bye smiley

Miss Hindhaugh
