Year 1 (Home Learning) – Monday 1st March

Welcome Back Year 1,

We have reached our final week of remote learning … let’s make this the best one yet!

Just a reminder that World Book Day is due to take place virtually this Thursday 4th March.
We set you a half-term activity to create your own costume – Miss Kinsella instructed that your costume must be made of recycled materials, e.g. cardboard boxes, pastic bottles, paper, ect.
Get creative and have lots of fun!

Answer these questions:



What is important to Jewish people?


Jews – people who practice Judaism

Jewish – belonging to the faith of Judaism


What makes a thing special? Does it have to cost a lot of money?

Let’s have a look at some of the items that are special to Jews …

Which item do you think is the most special?

The words in The Torah are the most precious thing for Jews as they are the words and instructions from God to the Jewish people. Jews believe in one God (just like Muslims and Christians do) These instructions form the rules by which Jews live every day, so they are treated very respectfully. Next week we’ll find out how they show this respect of the words.

Main Activity:

What item(s) are most special to you?

Record your ideas – you can draw and/or write to present your ideas.


Have a great day,
Miss Simons, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Billingham : )
