Learning at home.docx Y1.pdf

Hi Daffodils and Sunflowers,

Welcome to your home learning page. We hope you are looking forward to doing some exciting learning at home with your family - you can enjoy showing people in your house just how much you have learnt! We will add some new activities for you regularly and a 'Question of the Day' for you to research. (Please scroll down for document) These will support the tasks on your home learning sheet that was sent home in your folder. Please work through these and remember to read every day too! Some of the tasks are things you have already learnt, but you can practise these skills and retrieve some previous learning to check how much you have remembered. Also remember to stay active! There are some ideas for PE/Yoga on the online learning homepage.

You can also complete a project on something that you're really interested in. This could be a Science topic, your favourite animal, Space, a different country or a Sport. We would love to look at these when we are back at school together.

You don't need to complete all of the tasks in one day! Remember to spread them out and do a few each day. Try to practise some counting and reading every day though to keep up your skills.

Remember, work hard and have lots of fun! We miss your smiley faces each morning so keep smiling for us and stay safe.

 

Mrs Sherwood and Mrs Dutfield
