Welcome to Year 1

We have been working on space since January – this was going to run up until Easter. While you are at home, why don’t you have a look and see if there is anything else that you could do towards the topic that we haven’t covered due to the school closure.
As school is closed we would still like you to maintain a level of education whilst at home. Please use the links on this page under Useful Links to find some different activities. Have fun!!!
Over the following weeks we will be updating this page on a regular basis so please make sure you keep coming back to have a look at what exciting tasks we have in store for you!
Don’t forget that Mrs Ward and Mrs Duffy are still on hand to answer any questions you may have so please feel free to email us.
