Hello, to all our year 1 children. It looks like you’ve all been working hard at home over the last week. This week we would like you to do a little project as we come to the end of our topic. We would like you to research the life cycle of a butterfly and present you findings in a creative way. This could be in the form of a poster, booklet, craft activity or PowerPoint. Once completed please forward a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post what you have done onto this page for all your class mates to see. Happy researching!
The following websites may contain useful information for you and your child during the period of school closure. The children are also bringing home Handwriting books and activities. Feel free to use these and return to school when we reopen

Maths – Consolidation of previous learning: Addition and Subtraction
Below are links to Powerpoints and activity sheets that are designed around the Teaching for Mastery approach adopted by our school. These activities will compliment the teaching and learning that has been taking place in classrooms. Where resources are required we recommend using household objects such as buttons.
