Year 1- Home Learning

Week Beginning 1st March

Friday 5th March

Well done everyone (parents as well), today is our final day of home school. I'm so proud of all of your brilliant work and I am looking forward to seeing you all on Monday. 

Please don't send any work to me today but please bring in your home learning books on Monday. 

Please also remember to bring back your reading folders and PE kits; this term we have gymnastics on Thursday mornings. 

Parents - The 'Return to School Handbook' has been put onto the school jotter app and home page of the website. Please make sure you have read it carefully as there are a few changes. For Year 1 you will still need to enter and exit via the far gate near to the church path. Please also wear a face mask whilst in the school grounds and keep to social distancing. Thank you as always. 

Have a lovely weekend and I will you see you all on Monday.

Lent is a special time when the family of Jesus think about making a new start.  There are occasions when everyone wishes they could make a new start.  They wish they could do things differently and not have said or done something unkind, hurtful or silly.
