Year 1- Working From Home
Hello to all our wonderful Year 1 pupils! We will regularly be updating this page with resources to help you with your home learning. If you have any questions about the tasks set, please feel free to contact us between 9am and 4pm on the following email addresses:
After the first day of trying to manage working from home with home schooling our own children, we realise how difficult this is going to be! We understand that everyone is in different circumstances with different time constraints, outside stresses and so on. At such a difficult time we do not want anyone to feel extra pressure - yours and your child's mental health is so important. Whilst we will continue to put onto the website a daily English, Maths and weekly Theme, Science, RE and PHSE activities, we want to stress that there is no expectation to do all of these every day. Whilst it is important to keep your child's brain ticking over, there are plenty of ways to do this without formal work. Dust off the board games that have been sitting in the cupboard! Think about cooking, gardening, washing the car, read their favourite stories. Encourage physical activities-even a run around the garden, a bike ride or a walk around the block can boost well-being. Talk to your child, ask questions, find out what interests them and let them solve problems for themselves. If a subject or topic interests them allow them to find out more and explore using the resources you have, make it into a project. If you have time, email us with your photos, we would love to see your child in their home learning environment.
Let's make the best out of a bad situation. It is not often that we are given such an opportunity to learn with our children. Treasure it!
There are lots of learning resources and ideas under the 'Corona Virus Information' section of the website.
