Welcome back Year 1!

We all hope you've had a restful break. We can't wait to catch up with you all and hear about what you have been doing over the holidays.

We hope you have your thinking hats on today ready to start our new topic Extraordinary Explorers! 

Have a great day!

From Miss James, Miss Romagnoli, Mrs Partington and Miss Fisher laugh


Here is your second Music with Miss Nolan - we hope you enjoy!

Lesson 2 - https://didsbury.primarysite.media/media/music-lesson-2-miss-nolan


Today we will be starting to look at bigger numbers. The videos will be looking at numbers to 50. If you feel this is a little tricky you can still watch the videos but instead of completing the daily activities, have a look in the extra work folder and complete an activity each day working with numbers to 30. It may also help to print out a number square to 50 to use this week. If you don't have access to a printer you could have a go at making your own number square.

Today we are reading a new story called Naughty Bus, about a bus that goes exploring! Your activity is to recreate a scene from the story using a bus and whatever objects you can find. You can be as creative as you like! There are some different options for making a bus below - a paper model and a print out bus to cut out, or you can draw a picture or use a toy. There is a list of scenes below if you would like some help with ideas. We can't wait to see what you get up to laugh

Religious Education

Last term you learned about a religion. Can you remember what is was called?

That's right, Islam!

You have also learned about the religion Christianity in school.

This term we are going to learn about special events and celebrations and how they are celebrated.

We are going to look at some things that might be similar across different celebrations.

Today we are focusing on Christian Weddings.

The activity is to complete a special promise like people do at a wedding.
