Welcome to Year 1!

Dear parents and carers

During our school closure we are dedicated to continuing to provide a quality education for your children. If your child is not currently attending school, please use their pupil log in to view their online learning tasks. Your child should type their replies/answers into the box provided or upload photographs of their work so feedback can be given.

In addition to this, we expect your child to complete 10 minutes of Numbots and 20 minutes of Lexia every day. They can also access the free Maths activities on Mathletics using their given log in details. Please ensure your child takes regular breaks between the activities they complete. 

There are also lots of great extra activites you can do with your child, as described below.

Fitness and Wellbeing

It is important that your child remains active while not at school. Visit the link below to access a 'Kids Workout' video by Joe Wicks, posted at 9am daily.
