Class 1

Well, we're nearly at the end of term and what an extraordinary few months we've had! We have really enjoyed reading all your super writing and Maths, loved your artistic creations and were truly impressed with all your fantastic project work! 


There won't be any formal learning this week but if you do want something to do, we've added a couple of bits which we also hope to cover in school...


Wishing you all a very well-deserved Summer holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back in September.


Mrs B & Mrs G

Thankyou for all your learning photos this week. We have enjoyed reading about William Ransom and Hitchin Lavender! Some of you visited Hitchin to see where William Ransom lived and worked and one pupil had a try at making her own rose petal oil! It's wonderful to see your Maths and English learning too. Your learning will start to look a little different as from Monday so keep an eye on here as well as a letter home explaining our new expectations. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Hello and welcome back! We hope that you had a restful half term break. Our project for the coming week is all about Hitchin Lavender and a Botanist called William Ransom. Take a look at our usual tabs to find new learning for the week. We look forward to hearing from you!

Nina made this beautiful PowerPoint about being kind...

Hello again and what another busy week of home learning! We can't believe how much you have all done and how creative you have all been, despite the weather.

Happy Week 6 learning!

We hope that you have all had a restful Easter break and managed to enjoy a bit of sunny weather! 


What's new for the coming week?


In English we have a new task under Writing and some new Letter Join activities under Handwriting.  In Maths we have a new challenge from Owl, as well as White Rose weekly Maths (under Year 1/2 separately) starting again on Monday 20th April. Next Thursday is St George's Day so we have some ideas for you to try under Projects. We also have a St George reading comprehension to try under English too. 


As always, we don't expect you to do everything we put on here but you might find it helpful to complete one area of Maths, writing and reading each day whether that's Mathletics, White Rose, Essential Maths or project, English or Home Journal Writing in English. Key spellings are also useful to practise regularly (perhaps use Letter Join to help with handwriting?). Reading a few minutes everyday to your grown-up is also very important!


Please don't hesitate to contact us via the class email if you need any further assistance or guidance.

Wishing all of Class One a very Happy Easter!

Keep an eye on the learning pages for some eggciting activities...
