Welcome to the Emergency closure page for Year One. We will try to provide as much support and advice to help all parents and carers during this period of closure. We will upload a new set of activities each week for you. Also we will be contacting each of you once every 2 weeks to keep in contact with the children. This will give us the opportunity to maintain a link with them and also answer any of your questions about the learning at home.
The Year 1 teachers use Class Dojo forum to stay in contact with the children in their class. You can access Class Dojo via the website www.classdojo.com , however we recommend downloading the free app (this seems to work better).
Please read five ways to well being - support for parents and children - CLICK HERE if you feel it will help.
We are setting a variety of home learning activities to support you at this time.
Please start by clicking the purple link below to decide with your child what you would like to do.
There is absolutely no expectation to complete everything we suggest.
