Hello everyone.

Mrs Forshaw and I have been getting ready to welcome some of you back to school.  Due to the space needed, some of you will be in year 1 classroom and some in year 2 classroom although everyone will come in via our year 1 door as normal. We are all one pod and will share playtime, lunchtime and some outdoor activities as we have more space there. We will continue to support those who are not coming into school via online learning.  We are trying to link the activities for home with those being set in school wherever possible. Please contact school by e mail if you would like to speak to us about anything.  Thank you for sharing the work that you have done and news of the things that you are enjoying with your families.

Here are this weeks tasks:

There are activities available on My Maths, I have updated some but if you have not had a chance to try any of these please do.  If you did not get a high score the first time, have another try!

This weeks English is based around handwriting using Oxford Owls and also some PSHE work from Oak Academy

Oxford Owls – handwriting year 1 has a number of handwriting activities to focus on.

Our writing in English this week and next will linked to PSHE and the idea of creating a time capsule record of our time away from school.  This gives lots of opportunities to talk at home, it is not essential for all of the sheets to be completed (although some may want to). If you do not have access to a printer, its okay, just use paper or your writing book to get your ideas down. This will be something to look back at when you are older.
