Home Learning for Week 7 of Summer Term 2

Hi Year 1,

We hope you're all well and you've had a lovely weekend.

Well, it is your last official week in Year One! We are so proud of you this year as we know it has been a very difficult year for all of us. We have really missed having our full classes and seeing you all every day.

The dedication you have shown to home learning has been great and will really help your transition into year two.

This week the main aim is transition, so we have added some activities for you to complete to help you to start thinking about year two. If you would like to send us any of your transition activities we would love to send them to your new teachers.

The maths focus this week is time and we will be looking at telling the time to the hour and half past. When you have completed the lessons it would be great if you could go through the ‘Flashback’ PowerPoint to see if you can remember what you have learnt this term. I have also added the lovely White Rose activity booklets which will help you recap Year One's learning to ensure you are ready to move on in September. These can be found in the maths section below. 

As always we would love to hear from you (daltonyear1@gmail.com) and aim to respond to emails as quickly as we can.

We hope to speak to you soon and miss you all lots! Enjoy your last week of home learning and have a super summer!

Love Miss Wilkinson and Miss Donnelly xxx
