St Walburga's Catholic Primary School

Welcome to our new site

Welcome to F1

F1 is full of happy children and we run a very play based day nurturing the whole child and focusing on the children's individual needs and interests




We hope that you are well and staying safe. Whilst you are not at school, I am sure that you have lots of other things that you can do but I thought that you might like a few activities to do with your little one - if you have any spare time.

If you would like to show us what you have been up to please take a photo and email it to me, 


Useful websites

The numberblocks part of this website is especially good.

At the moment they are offering free membership for parents, the mini mash has some lovely games for younger children.

Has some free ebooks that you can access with your child


Lots of authors have said that they will read their books and talk about their books. Search for Oliver Jeffers, he is reading a book live online at 6pm via his instagram and then archiving them on his website.

Projects that you might like to do

  • Save boxes and tubs and ask your child to create a model
  • Paint a picture of something that they can see out of the window/themselves or their friend
  • If you have anything that you could plant: cress, beans, carrot tops have a go at planting them and see if you can make them grow
  • Read lots and lots and lots of books, comics, packets
  • Practise writing names….in salt, flour or big in the air with scarves
  • Play out in the garden, if you have one.
  • Open up big boxes and let your children draw and write, make tracks for cars, big maps, train tracks anything





Every Monday we take the F1 children to the woods, which are within our school grounds. We build dens, play games, share stories, explore and have fun!

Spring Term

This half term we will be starting off learning about 'Space', depending on the children's interests this may lead anywhere!
