Year 1 - Home Learning - Week Five

Hello All,

I'm writing this message hoping you are all safe and well!

Please find work below for the week beginning Monday 4th May. There are 4 days worth of work this week due to it being Bank Holiday on Friday 8th May. I hope you all enjoy your long weekend when it comes!

Like last week, I have put numbers next to the Maths and Literacy lessons to help you organise your days - if this works for you. So (1) can be the first lesson, then (2) is the second etc. In school we usually do Phonics, Literacy and Maths in the mornings then Science, Handwriting / Spellings, PE, History and RE in the afternoons. However, I realise home learning is very different to being at school, so as always, do what you can, when / if you can! 

For the summer term the topic for the school is 'waves' so you will notice lots of learning based around the sea over the coming weeks. 

I'm hoping it won't be too long until see all your smiling faces again!

Have a great week everyone.

Miss Gardener xx
