Transition information for the new Year 1 Children September 2020


Dear Parents and Carers,


We hope you have had a restful week and are ready for the rest of this summer term.

Please find below the Home Learning tasks for Maths, English and the Foundation subjects.

Remember, there is also a range of online options (see the links further below) to help with learning at home. These include, BBC Bitesize, Maths on the Move, IXL and Learning Ladders.

In the home learning section you will find an information sheet which explains the weekly tasks for Maths, English and the relevant topic work for that week, along with the activities/worksheets we have set for that week. Some Maths and English tasks will be ongoing and some will be new activities that might be worksheet based or practical.  Take your time to work through the activities and remember to break down learning into small chunks throughout the day.  Our weekly/daily tasks are set to help you structure your child's learning schedule, please do not feel pressured to follow it, make your schedule work for you 


It is great to see how the children are getting on with their home learning so please do continue to email us photographs of their work. Remember to send photographs as jpegs and with your permission to upload to The Home Learning Gallery.  


Please continue to use the Year 1 email address if you need to contact us and we will be happy to answer your queries during school hours. 

This is our Year 1 email address...

When emailing, please include your child's name and class along with the subject you are enquiring about.
