A Message From Your Teachers...
Hello Year One- how are we all this morning? Happy Monday! I hope you all managed to get out and enjoy the snow this weekend- I hope you had plenty of walks and snowball fights outside with your families! I went on some lovely walks as I absolutely LOVE the snow! After you have finished your work today please make sure you go out and enjoy the snow- maybe you could post some fantastic snow pictures on the blog so we can all see and enjoy them.
This morning we have some retrieval questions in English and are comparing and ordering numbers in Maths. There is PE with Joe Wicks to enjoy, the Story of The Good Samaritan to learn about in RE and a wonderful reading of Handa's Surprise for Story Time. Make sure that you post all your fantastic work on the blog or to j2files as normal as I so enjoy seeing it all and responding to you. Don't forget to sign in with your name using the daily register too. I encourage you to complete as much as you can, but make sure you have plenty of time getting outside and enjoying the snow- we don't have many snow days and you should make the most of them!
There is also brand new Home Learning Packs available this week which you can collect from the school office from Tuesday. Make sure that you phone the school beforehand to let them know you are wanting to pick up a pack and try to come between 9.15-9.30 where possible.
Remember, if at any time you have any queries about the home learning or if you need any support, please send me an email to the address below - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great day everyone and enjoy the snow!
