It has been fantastic to have all of Year 1 back for face to face learning. We have had a brilliant start to term thinking about friendships.

But you can use it as a guide to support your child at home if your child needs to isolate. 


All weekly homework will now be found on Seesaw. I will put on 1 literacy, 1 numeracy and 1 reading activity to complete each week linked to our learning.

12 Kippers diary

Year 1 here are the 100 high frequency words, which I spoke some parents about. These are words you need to be able to read and spell. Don't try and learn them all at once but choose 4 or 5 to start with and then move on at your own pace. Try making them into flashcards to help you learn them.
