Hi year 1,
I hope you all had a lovely Easter filled with fun and chocolate! Thank you so much for all the emails and photographs that I have received over the past few weeks. They really do make me smile. A big well done to those children who have been accessing Education City as well as Timestable Rockstars and Numbots. Both myself and Mr Parish are really impressed with the hard work you are putting in.
I will be uploading a story on YouTube which will be based on our new topic 'minibeasts'. I will continue to upload different stories based around this topic. I will be linking this topic to some of the work that I will be setting on Seesaw, which is learning platform that we have started using. You will receive a login, via email, to access Seesaw before Monday. Mr Parish is also sending out further information regarding Seesaw and how it works. To begin with i have set 3 pieces of work for you to have a go at. I am very excited to see how you access these tasks! If you have finished your tasks on Seesaw there are lots of links below to keep you busy!
If you have any questions please feel free to email me :).

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ -White rose. The White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from Year 1-8. They will be adding five more each week for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.
Numbots: I’m delighted to inform you about a new service we’re using to support your child’s maths education. The creators of Times Tables Rock Stars have produced a platform for boosting addition and subtraction skills, called NumBots. NumBots is an online game and playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical foundations in maths so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have. I have attached a parents guide down below in the downloads section.
