School Closure Information
Each week, I will be uploading a new pack of resources for the following week to the Year One page. A few parents have asked for extra materials with regard to reading. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to give out new reading books but this website has lots of e-books that can be shared with your children: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/ . As well as reading material, the home learning section has games and ideas across the curriculum and there is a section specifically aimed at Year 1 children.
If you have any questions or require any help with home learning then please contact me at the email address below:

Victory in Europe Day, generally known as VE Day, is a day celebrating the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany's unconditional surrender of its armed forces on 8th May 1945. This year marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
I have attached some resources and ideas that the children can use at home to help them understand and commemorate this important event. Please send any photos of your VE Day activities to my email and I will share them on the Year One webpage.

Artist Lynn Flavell talks about how she draws inspiration from fresh fruit and vegetables. She demonstrates ways of making a repeated pattern using a template and paint with a fruit shape.
It's been lovely to hear from so many of you this week and find out what you've been up to at home. Lots of children have created some wonderful pieces of work linked to the latest environment topic. Well done! Keep up the good work!
Below is a very informative video that I was sent by one pupil, talking about the importance of re-using and re-cycling.
