23rd March- 3rd April
Hello Year 1! We hope that you have enjoyed your work packs sent home from school before we closed which will take you up until the Easter Holidays. We have enjoyed seeing your hard work! Well done!
3rd April 2020- 19th April
We have uploaded an optional activity sheet for you to complete over the Easter holidays with your family if you would like . There are loads of fun activities for you to complete every day.
20th April 2020- 1st May 2020
We will upload your new work from home packs on here for the weeks beginning 20th April and 27th April. These have been made to last you for 2 weeks. These packs have been printed and will be available to collect in school from Tuesday 21st April. This way you can follow the website links from this digital copy (if you are able) and complete the tasks as you have been doing, on paper in your paper packs. We have included website links to help provide children with variety. If you are not able to access them, please do not worry; the paper tasks can be completed without the links. We hope you enjoy!
On this page you can find out about the different activities we are doing in school. You can play games to help your learning and see photos of our special events.

PE - Year 1 have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure no earrings are worn on these days, and that all long hair is tied back.
Library - Year 1 visit the school library on a Thursday afternoon - Please ensure that children have their bookbags in school.
Reading books- Children have all been given an individual coloured reading book. These could be changed daily or after the children have read it with you regularly at home. Don't forget to record each read in your reading logs.
Every Tuesday we will send home 3 new sounds to practise for their homework with their phonics book. Please ensure that their phonics books are returned to school daily!
