Dear children and parents/carers,
We hope are well and keeping safe at home. The learning pack you received last week has a few ideas for some activities in it. We understand that you may be anxious about your child's education but as you know them so well you are very well placed for them to continue to make progress. Remember that time spent at home will be far more intense and please do not feel you have to spend the whole day on learning, especially as many of you will be trying to work from home as well. We will update the website regularly. Please use the links and activities suggested if they help but do not feel obliged to carry out every activity. They are intended as a guide for you. Practical activities like art and craft, cooking, Lego/construction and junk modelling are all great learning activities and also great for distraction/relaxing for all.
You may find it helpful to set up short activities in slots throughout the day with regular breaks in between. Twinkl has some good suggestions. Keeping physically activities is important. SuperMovers and Cosmic Kids Yoga will be great for everyone.
The Year 1 Team
There are three Year One classes - Otters, Hedgehogs and Squirrels. There is also a mixed Year One / Two class called Kingfishers.
In Year One we build on the progress already made in early years. We develop key learning skills that help us to be independent learners with a 'can-do' attitude.
Throughout the academic year, we develop our learning through creative and stimulating themes incorporating outdoor learning, drama and exciting experiences. Recently we came to school and discovered a crime scene in our classrooms with bowls of porridge, a lock of golden hair, a red ribbon and a necklace with a G on it. After watching the school CCTV we discovered Goldilocks had been visiting. We assisted the local Police by writing wanted posters and thinking of questions to ask her once she was caught!
