Year 1

Hello Everyone in Y1

Week beginning 30.03.2020

Hi Wolves,

Welcome back to the Year 1 page. I hope that you enjoyed your weekend and that you are starting to get used to our new routine. It’s very strange isn’t it? But I know that you are a great bunch and that you will rise to the challenge.

Don’t forget if you get fed up or start to feel sad, you can use  the TAKE 5 that we do at school to take a breath and step back from everything.





If you have been able to go out for a walk with your adult or family you might have seen pictures of rainbows in windows.

The aim is to make people smile and also to offer a message of hope  that things will get better.

Rainbows remind us there is ALWAYS hope and light after dark times. 

Why don’t you draw or make a rainbow and put it in your window?



Joe Wicks is showing a live fun work out every morning at 9am, login to his youtube channel for more information.


Jobs … 

Make or draw a rainbow and put it in your window.

Read your book.

Check out the new Purple Mash Tasks

Count in 2s all the way to 30 and write it down  (don’t forget to put a finger space in between each number).

Tuesday 31.03

Good morning Year 1. Did you make a rainbow? If you didn’t it’s not too late. Draw it using bright colours and don’t forget to put it in the window of your house.

Easter Holidays

Next week ( week beg. 6th) and the following week ( week beg.13th) are the Easter Holidays.This means that there will be no extra work set for you during this time. If you would like to do some work on Purple  Mash then I will still mark it, but there is NO EXPECTATION for you to do any. 

It is a bit of a strange time at the moment for all of us, but it’sSTILL your Easter holidays and I want you to have fun and try to enjoy yourselves.Play in the garden do some colouring or perhaps make a den to read and eat your Easter Eggs in.

I will keep checking in with you from time to time to say hello.

lots of love
