School Closure Home Learning
Dear Year 1 children and parents,
Today, Tuesday 5th January, we start another period of Home Learning! It is sad that we can't be together but remember that we are doing this to make sure that we are all safe and well.
Whilst you are at home do your best to follow the lessons from the Daily Learning Schedules which will be uploaded each day and can be found under the big yellow star icon. Don't worry if you can't or don't do everything on the schedule - do what you can (but choose Phonics and Reading first!). Most of the tasks will be broken down into 3 steps: you should all complete step 1 and those of you who are able and willing can complete steps 2 and 3 as well. We will be sending home a blue Maths book and a red English book for Maths and English activities. Any written tasks for other subjects such as Science, History and R.E. can also be recorded in the red English book. We would like you to return these books to school when we are open again, so make sure you do your best to present your work neatly and to keep your books looking smart!
Remember to say your daily prayers and to take time to relax. There are lots of other ideas and resources on this page if you are looking for something more or something different to do. Parents, if you need any help, support or just have a general query please email me and I will do my best to help.
Enjoy your time at home and remember to have fun! Please send me some photographs and videos so that I can see what you have been doing and so that they can be shared on this page. I really look forward to seeing what you get up to during your Home Learning time.
God willing we will all be back together again soon.
With love from Mrs Trattos

Questions to ask your child when sharing a book.
Firstly I would like to say how sad I am having not been able to be with the children this last week in these most challenging of circumstances. Please pass on my love to them.
Starting from Monday 23rd March, each morning by 9am I will upload a Daily Learning Schedule onto this page. The schedule will provide the children with a range of tasks and activities for Phonics, Reading, Maths and more.
I will do my best to describe the tasks clearly and succinctly and to explain what the children need to do. There may be more than one step to each task. All children should be able to access the first step and, if your child is able and willing, they can then try step 2 and 3.
I fully understand the challenges that you as parents will be facing over the coming weeks, especially with children so young. Please be assured that if you have any queries regarding the Learning Schedule, I will be on hand to help - just send me an email.
I look forward to receiving any feedback from you regarding home learning – a new challenge for us all! Photos of the children with their work would be very much welcome. Thank you.
