Year 1 - Home Learning

2nd July 2020

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Please see the attached letter about a circle time catch up event that has been planned for Friday 10th July at 1.15pm.  Please contact the school office on 01302 369143 / admin3@stpeter.doncaster.sch.uk if you would like your child to attend. All those children currently in school will be involved.

 

Thank you

Hello Year 1 smiley

 

I hope you are all well, and I hope you are enjoying your home learning. It has been another busy week in school, and myself and Mrs Thickett have really enjoyed spending time in school with the children that are back. I know Mr Wynne and Mrs Hamilton have also enjoyed their time with their bubble of Year 1's. I can't quite believe that there is only 1 week left in school before we break up for the summer holidays, time really has flown! We are hoping to see some more of you next Friday for our end of year celebration. 

 

For Week 16 I have directed you to use bitesize for some learning activities, however I have added some extra learning activities as I am aware that using bitesize does not offer much support for Year 1 children. Unlike older children, we are still developing our independence skills, so I have included extra tools such as word mats. I hope this is helpful for you all, and if you need any further help please do not hesitate to contact me. I am checking my emails every day after school, so I am available to help. 

 

I would like to express my deepest thanks for all your kind emails, some of the messages I have received have been very personal and lovely and it is greatly appreciated.  Myself and Mrs Thickett would also like to express out deepest thanks for the lovely presents we have received, we really appreciate your kindness and thanks. We are truly grateful to you all, but we want you to know that you really don't have to buy anything for us.

 

Take care and keep smiling,

Love and best wishes,

Miss Brogan smiley

We are currently facing a very difficult time. Schools are closed, and we must be grateful to all of the key workers who are keeping us safe and working hard to keep the world moving. Create a poster for a key worker of your choice, and send it to them. E.g. send a poster to the local care home, send a poster to the local fire station, leave a poster on the door for the post man. The document below has some examples to help you, but please feel free to be as creative as you possibly can. We can make somebody smile this week! smiley
