Week Beginning 11th May

Hello Lovely Year 1 children and parents!


We hope you are all well and enjoyed last Friday's VE Day celebrations.

This week we would like you to continue with your Phonics Play time, Hit the Button and cursive handwriting practise daily.  We are now on Week 4 of My Maths. Please refer to this week's timetable for  information.  If you wish to do some additional daily activities then  feel free to access BBC Bitesize.  Please note there are no worksheets for the lessons available.  So kindly follow the instructions after the lesson.

Thank you for all your amazing photos of your plant projects and medals.  This week we would like you to make your very own Leap Year time capsule. You can fill a container ( it could be a jar, box, tin or other kind) with things that will remind you of your time at home.  Some examples of things to fill your container with are: a miniture toy,  a favourite sweet wrapper, a poem to yourself and/or family photograph.  It is really up to you to decide how much and what. There is also a writing sheet linked below for you to include in your capsule. 

Don't forget to label it with 'DO NOT OPEN UNTIL 2024'.  It would be great if you could keep your time capsules until the next leap year.  Can you work out when that would be?  Clue- A leap year happens once every 4 years.  Can you tell us which year group you will be in 4 years from now?

Enjoy collecting interesting things and we look forward to seeing all your lovely photographs of your capsules. 


Take care and stay safe.
