All the staff in Year 1 hope you are safe and well.

This page is for you to access Year 1 learning resources.

 

Each day we will post a phonics, English, Maths and foundation subject activities for you to complete.

 

We understand that there may be barriers to remote learning but we appreciate any learning towards this target that you can achieve! Please try not to feel overwhelmed by the amount of work! Try to focus on Maths and English lessons if you can. We would prefer to give you plenty of work than not enough. 

 

Ultimately we want you and your families to keep safe

 

We also do not expect you to print everything out. However, you can if you want to. Most of the activities can be done with just a pencil and a piece of paper or things around your home and garden.

 

If you have any questions or want to share any other work your child has completed, please use the email address below:

year1@matchborough.worcs.sch.uk

 

We will be setting two '2 Dos' daily on Purple Mash. These can be completed online and once completed, we can provide feedback. Please encourage your child to complete these activities independently.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
