Year 1 (Home Learning) – Friday 29th January

Happy Friday Year 1,

Our theme of the week this week is resilience. The Year 1 team have been looking for children learning from home and in school that have shown resilience this week.

Join us on Zoom @ 10:40am to find out who we have awarded our Set the Standard certificates to this week.
