Year 1


29/5/20 Hello everybody and welcome to the Year 1 home learning page.

We hope you have all had a lovely half term and have enjoyed the gorgeous weather that we have had. We have noticed that in the last week some of you have grown your cress seeds and have fantastic cress heads. Have any of you eaten any of the cress you have grown - they are very tasty with egg sandwiches. Maybe if you haven't eaten any yet you could help make yourself and your family a egg and cress sandwich! It has been National bbq week this week - we wonder how many of you have been lucky enough to have a bbq, or maybe you are planning one this weekend! 

This coming week Dan, Ryan and Lydia will all be celebrating their birthdays. Happy Birthday to you all - we hope you enjoy your special days.

Keep us posted about what you get up to next week - we love seeing what you are doing.

We have uploaded a new suggested learning sheet for next week - week ten. There is a story called 'I want my hat back' all about a bear and lots of other bear activities! We hope you enjoy them! There are also some resources about 30 Days Wild which is being organised by The Wildlife Trusts and starts at the beginning of June. - we will keep you posted with other activities that they post during the month of June. Remember, these are suggested activities to fit in when you can, alongside other things that you do with your family.


Don’t forget.... Young Voices at Home is happening THIS COMING WEEK! Simply register free using the link, learn the song ‘Power in Me’ and join in singing it on Tuesday 2nd June at 2.30!  

If you are registered to take part you will receive a link on Monday 1st to the video you will need for your final performance on The video will have exciting footage of people singing from around the world and will start with special warm ups from some amazing choir leaders including David Lawrence.  

You could wear something special and perform the song along with the video at home – you could even sing out of a window or outside so other people can hear.  Don’t forget to let us all know how you get on - we would love to hear!
