Week of 27th April 2020

Hello Year 1 students, I hope you are keeping well and happy. I have to say, I immensely enjoyed all of the lovely work I was sent last week. It’s wonderful to see you are being busy little bees and are keeping up a healthy and happy attitude to your home-learning tasks.

Lots of you have been wondering how I am. I am still doing very well, I think it’s fair to say I embraced every single day of the glorious sunshine we were blessed with last week. I go for my daily cycle/ run and I have been quite adventurous exploring new nature trails, I even came across a bluebell trail last week and it was lovely seeing the bumblebees swaying and gliding in and out amongst them. I loved hearing all the nature you have spotted; a cheeky little woodpecker, a school of tadpoles and a band of pigeons!

Please send me on any work you would like me to see and parents, any questions please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me.  See below this weeks’ work.
