Mon 30th March - Fri 3rd April

Dear Year 1 parents and children,

I hope you are all keeping well at home! Here are some more home learning activities for this week. Please remember all activities can be done on paper/copied from the screen and do not need to be printed off. I know Education City has been a bit challenging over the past week, I will continue to upload activities on there but ensure there are plenty of non-education city activities uploaded here. Keep safe everyone and keep reading :) 

There are activities for Monday-Wednesday. Thursday would have been the beginning of the Easter Holidays, so we will not be setting work from this point onwards until Monday 20th April (when children were due to return for the beginning of the Summer term). Please use the Easter Holidays to catch up on any outstanding Education City homeworks. Enjoy your Easter as best as you can and I look forward to hopefully seeing you all soon! 

From Year 1 Team
