Dear Year One Children, Parents and Carers,

We have been so impressed and appreciative of the continued support that you are giving to your child’s Home Learning Tasks during these challenging times. The children are working so hard on their learning¬† in English, Mathematics and the Foundation subjects. In English this week, the children have produced a story board about ‘Mrs Armitage and the Big Wave’ and their work has been wonderful with carefully drawn pictures and writing. In previous weeks, we have also read the book ‘Flotsam’, which does not have any text, and the children had to use their imagination to think about what the story maybe about. They rose to the challenge and they produced such imaginative writing and drawing.¬†During the mathematics tasks, we have been continuing to learn about 2D shapes and their properties. The children have produced careful work and they have used their knowledge to answer some challenging questions.

The work completed for the Foundation Subject Art Tasks has been amazing! The children have been learning about a range of artists including L.S. Lowry and Giuseppo Arcimboldo and the art work produced has been colourful, imaginative and creative! This week, the children have been learning about the Four Seasons and they have used a range of skills including collage, painting and drawing to show how a tree changes across all four seasons. It has been great to see the time and care that has been taken to produce this work. Well done everyone!

Thank you again for your support during this time.

Take care and Stay Safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon!

Best wishes, Miss Bowtell
