Year 1 Learning Week 4 Term 6


This Term: Animalia

  • We will be inviting 1 parent for each child to come to our ‘Learning Share’  to be held on the class patios on Wednesday 7th July. This will be a chance for you to look through your child’s work with them and then in small groups come into the classroom to take a look around and see where all their amazing learning has been taking place. Full social distancing will need to be observed. If you could bring a pen, you will have the opportunity to complete the parent view for your child’s report whilst you are sharing their work with them.

                  Class 5 – 2:30 pm – 3:15 pm  (odds)
Class 4 and 6 – 9:10 am – 9:55 am  (evens)

  • Remember to click the link to plans and resources below if your child is needing to self-isolate but is well. Please email the class email address if you find yourself in this position and are unsure.
  • We are having some time this week to meet new teachers and visit classrooms. Last week we talked to our classes about their new teachers and their new classes and you should also have been informed by email with the details.
  • We will continue to aim to get outside as much as possible so they really need a waterproof coat each day.
