Wednesday 22nd April


Good morning Year 1! Today is Wednesday the 22nd of April. How are you all doing today? I hope you got on well with yesterday’s tasks. I’m sure your birthday cards for the Queen looked amazing! I have started our home learning picture gallery below under the pictures section. Have a look and remember to send in pictures of your good work and of you too. 

Did you know that today is Earth day? You can learn more about this special day in your daily tasks.



Practise reading our daily calendar with someone in your family. 
Example: The day is Wednesday. The date is the 22nd. The month is April. The season is spring and the weather is sunny. 


We have been having some lovely weather so far this spring. I hope you are able to get outside for some daily exercise. Miss Tanner enjoys going for a short walk, just to get some fresh air.


If you didn't see yesterday, Ms Hume has added some fun music activities for you to do at home. Make sure to check out her page.

PSHE: We only have one Earth and it is our job to make sure it stays clean and healthy. There are lots of different parts of the Earth like water, land, animals, atmosphere and humans and we all play an important part in taking care of the Earth. Have you heard of the three R's before?

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Find lots of Earth day crafts in the link below. These crafts all use recycled materials. Make sure to send in some pictures if you make one.
