Year 1 - Home Learning - Week 11

Hi Everyone,

Please find below work for the week : )

In Literacy. children will be creating their own comic strips. Please continue to ensure when the children are writing they are using capital letters at the beginning of sentences and for names. Please also make sure they are using full stops at the end of sentences. 

In Maths, they will be learning all about money using their existing knowledge of addition. Finally, there is also some PSHE, Science and the Fun activities. 

I hope you're all keeping well (and sane) at home!
