Year 1 Remote Learning 2021
Hi Year 1. We miss you all so much. Each day there will be some activities for you to do at home. You can do them in your home learning book or on paper. For some of the activities we will upload videos underneath the day to help you with your learning. Have fun :)

Here is a suggested timetable to help you during this period of remote learning. We suggest that the children take regular breaks after each activity to help them to stay engaged and on task. Thank you for your support.
Don't forget Mr Lugg's weekly challenge! There will be a prize for the best entry each week. Good luck! Click on the link below.
Each week we will share a video of some amazing home learning. Take a look at this weeks video to see what we did last week.
