Welcome to Year 1's Home Learning!
I hope you all had a wonderful half term. I'm glad the sun was shining down on you and hope you all managed to get out and have some fun, whether that be in your gardens having a BBQ, or going out for a picnic somewhere.
Our topic this term is 'Marvellous inventors'. This is a great chance for your children to let out their inner inventor. They could create their own recipe, which adults you must try of course, even if it is chocolate mixed with peas! They could design a new game to play or a new dance routine. The options are endless. Have fun with the topic :)
Below are a list of topic related learning options. Once again, please remember even more important than any work listed below is your wellbeing and the achieve something each day that makes you smile!
The website will be updated weekly (by 12pm each Monday)
I have loved seeing the pictures you have been sending in so far. They really have put a smile on my face so thank you . Please keep sharing your amazing home learning with us by sending your photos to the office which can then be put on the website. This does not have to be the work listed below.
