Year 1

Hello year 1


We hope you have had an enjoyable Easter break. We are pleased that the Easter bunny is a key worker and managed to get out to delivery some eggs. We have certainly enjoyed finding and eating ours. She even found Mrs Loy's phone and took a cheeky selfie! 

Our home learning section of the website is up and running now. Work will be uploaded by the end of a Friday for the following week. Our challenges will now be weekly and they will also be in the home learning section. These will be uploaded on a Monday. We will be back checking the year 1 team emails from Monday 20th April. We love hearing from you and seeing any photographs. Any photographs emailed will be uploaded to the website on a Friday. Please make sure photographs are email to by the Thursday.

Hello year 1 .

We hope you are all well and enjoying some of the wonderful sunshine. It is very strange it being Tuesday and we have not seen your smiling faces. We have already seen what some of you have been up to this week. Thank you.

We hope you are managing to get some of the home learning done each day. It doesn't have to be on paper, it could be on one of the websites we gave you. 

If you have any questions or want to email us for any reason please send them to:
