Year 1

Information for Parents
Please click on the links below to find the overview of activites set for Home Learning. These projects are to be used during the school closures. All the links to suggested webites can be found within each overview document. The aim of these documents are to support your child with their learning while school is closed. We are reviewing these plans on a weekly basis and will upload a new plan each week.

There is also another document attachment below, which gives many physical ideas and more hands on experiences. 

If anyone requires any help or support, please feel free to contact me via Class Dojo. Also, I would love to see what you've been learning and which activties you have been doing so please share updates of your learning on your Class Dojo Pupil Story.  

We realise that this is challenging and unprecedented time for all of us right now and all staff would like to thank you for your ongoing support.

We appreciate the difficulties some of you may face supporting your child's learning at home with work commitments and other responsibilities, however we want to provide as many opportunities as possible for learning to be accessed and anything you do at home will be beneficial to your child.

Stay safe.

Keep in touch and make the most of your time together.

Something very special will be
