Year 1 Home Learning - Week Six

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a great, long weekend and enjoyed the lovely sunshine last week! 

Please find work for the children below for the week. Literacy is a mixture of activities based on the story of Starry-Eyed Stan. Maths is focusing on multiplication, division and 5 x tables. And Science is continuing to learn about the body and healthy living. You will also find some Geography and Art this week. 

If the children complete any colouring or art work that they are particulary proud of during lockdown please keep it, as it would be great to put up in the classroom should we return this academic year.

I have spoken to Miss Cummins and she said to say hello to all the children! She also mentioned she would love to join in a Zoom meeting should you have one again, so please let the office know again if this happens and I can pass on the relevant information. 

I still can't believe I finally found the loveliest class of children and this has happened. Missing you children lots! 

Miss Gardener xx
