Year 1

Welcome to the Y1 class page. 

It is great to have you all back in school although it feels quite different to what we are used to.  Due to COVID-19, we know and understand that people may need to self-isolate and/or bubbles may have to close.  Fortunately, this should not impact on learning as we will keep you updated with what we are learning in school and provide you with work to do at home if you need to isolate but are not unwell.  Work will be set on Tapestry (which you had access to during Reception class), so it is important that parents have the app! Tapestry information and permissions letter.

If your child needs to self-isolate but is not unwell, here is a link to our 'GET GOING' sheet, which has already been sent home.  Please use this if you are waiting for remote learning on Tapestry.

Please see the summary of our learning challenges below, which will be updated every week.  The remote home learning activities on Tapestry will be directly related to this list.

Get Going in Year 1

If you are at home self-isolating but you are well enough to be busy with some learning we would like you to go onto Tapestry to see what work your teacher has set for you.  If you can't, or it doesn't work for you, below this section is what your class are learning this week so see if you can match what you are doing, to on here.  If you are REALLY stuck and your can't do either of those things, here is your 'Get Going' sheet with ideas of things that are always good to work on.

Keeping children safe on-line: it's crucial that we consider our online presence. During the lockdown, we have been fortunate to have an online community to stay connected with friends and family.
