Year 1


Please help your children better understand the situation by looking through ‘Children’s Guide to Coronavirus’. Click here:

If Year 1’s bubble needs to close at any point, school will continue to help pupils with their education. We will update this page on a regular basis on work you can do with your child.

There are more links on the Home Learning page containing subject-specific tasks you can use with your child.

Please listen to your child read every day and help them learn their number facts and times tables.  

Remember to do a little every day.

Take care, from Year 1 staff.
