Year 1 Home Learning

Good Morning Year 1 and welcome to the summer term! I hope you've had a lovely half-term holiday. 

Now that school has re-opened and some children are back at school, Home Learning will be set once a week on a Friday, for the following week. The  tasks set are intended to take the week to complete, but remember, you do not have to complete all the activities and you may wish to adapt them to suit the needs of your child/ren (some days they learn better than others!) Some of the Phonics, English or Maths tasks will need to be completed in order but this may not always be the case.
