Home Learning Week beginning 22nd June

Hello Year 1, 


Another week has passed. We are missing those of you who are not in school lots. No news on Mrs Paice yet, I will let you know as soon as I hear anything. This week is going to very hot so see if you can spend some time outside too.


I have some new home learning for you to complete below. Work through it during the week and I will add. Remember these are only suggestions and you don't have to complete all of it. If you would like to complete your own activities as well that is fine. 


I hope you have a lovely week and enjoy the sunshine. If you go on a walk you could walk past the school and give us a wave. We are usually on the KS1 playground quite a lot.
