Year 1

We have created a page which will allow you to access lots of learning activities from home.  We know how much you enjoy using many of these online activities in the classroom and hope you will continue from home.

In Year 1 we learn about different plants and the changes we observe in the four seasons.  We would like you to start a nature diary. Look out of your window each day. What do you notice? What is happening to the plants and trees?  What is the weather like in spring? Make notes of what you can see.


Oxford Owl provides information and a variety of activities to support writing in Year 1.  Follow the link: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/english/primary-writing/writing-year-1-age-5-6/
