Year 1 - Home Learning

Hello Year 1 smiley I can't believe we are only at the end of the 2nd week of isolation, it seems like so long ago we were in class together. Both myself and Mrs Thickett are really missing your smiling faces, but we hope that you and your families are all well, and that you're keeping yourselves safe at home. It is my birthday on Monday (6th), and I know I would much rather be at school with all of you (having fun and sharing cake). But for now I will have to settle for working hard at home, and receiving your lovely messages via email. 


I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has taken the time to send me an email, it is lovely to hear from you and to see what home learning you have been doing. Well done for all your hard work, I am very proud of all the effort you have put in so far smiley keep it up! 


There are still some people who have not emailed me to gain access to Numbots. If you would like this then please email me as I have login's for all children in Year 1, and I feel it is an engaging and purposeful maths activity for you to do. I have signed up for a free trial during this period of school closure. 


I have updated the new learning for Week 3, and I hope you enjoy all the activities that I have set for you. If you have any photographs of you engaging in your home learning, or if you have a fantastic piece of work that you would like to show, then please send it to me via email and I will put it on here for everyone to see. 


Have fun, and remember to enjoy spending time with your loved ones whilst you are safe at home. 


Take care,

Miss Brogan smiley
