Year 1 Information Page

Whilst we would like you to be able to complete as much of our home learning as you can, we also understand that this may not always be possible.  This may be for a number of reasons.  We appreciate that every family is going through a range of different experiences and challenges at the moment and we would not want you to be hard on yourselves if you do not feel able to complete learning on a particular day in a given week.  All we ask is that you and your children try to do whatever you can, with the time and resources you have available.  We will always be very grateful for anything you are able to do, but will not mind if some work is left incomplete.

Hello from the Year 1 team! We hope you are all keeping well, staying safe and keeping smiling!

We have put together a plan for another 2 weeks of learning and have included activities you can be enjoying together.
