Good afternoon Year 1 children and parents!
What superstars you have been in Year 1!
It has been lovely to see the work that you have been completing at home. Mrs Serra and I are so impressed with all your fabulous achievements! It is clear that you have been working hard and we thank you and your parents for the commitment and enthusiasm you have shown especially during these uncertain times.
Here is some of the amazing work that we have received via email…
Very impressed that some children have insisted on getting dressed each morning in their uniform to complete home learning tasks.
Rose has been busy making an amazing volcano, baking some amazing rainbow pancakes and creating a beautiful Easter garden!
Constance has been very busy practising her letter formation, writing and done some fabulous drawings.
She has also created a beautiful family tree.
How lovely that Edward has been writing to his friend Ted. Through his topic work, he has also been keeping his grandparents happy via the web.
What a super cloud painting!
Love that the children have been able to go outdoors and create Easter baskets.
I can see that there has been lots of delicious home baking going on – scrummy cakes!
How clever are pandas that can do MyMaths!
What a great cloud poem, Mark!
Fun in the Sun!
As the next couple of weeks would have been the Easter holidays, there will be no learning grid attached for two weeks.
However, if you would like to continue to work, there are many activities on the ‘twinkl’ and ‘purple mash’ websites to keep you busy. You may also like to try this activity called ‘Eggs in Basket’ from the NRICH Maths website https://nrich.maths.org/eggsinbaskets/note
Easter time is one of the most important times in the church calendar. We begin our week with Palm Sunday which is the start of Holy Week.
On Palm Sunday, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey with his Disciples. Crowds of people came to welcome him waving palm branches and shouting ‘Hosanna’!
As we are not able to visit Church now I saw an idea on social media to acknowledge this special day. This can be found on the website https://thedeaconsbench.com/a-beautiful-idea-for-palm-sunday
On Maundy Thursday, Jesus washed the feet of his Disciples. He shared his last meal with his friends before going into the garden of Gethsemane to pray. Who would have known that one of his Disciples would betray him? Jesus was arrested by the soldiers and sentenced to death.
On Good Friday, we learn that Jesus was given a heavy cross to carry before being nailed on it to die.
By Easter Sunday, we hear that Jesus was given new life and it is a time to celebrate and sing ‘Alleluia’ Jesus has risen from the dead!
In previous years, our school hall has been transformed into lots of little prayer stations that the children can visit. At home, you might like to create one of your own and spend a little time each day reflecting on the events that took place during Holy week.
Minnie Vinnie Easter Display Competition
The Minnie Vinnie Team at the Diocese have put together an Easter Display Competition. The idea behind this is to bring hope and joy to others during this difficult time. Entries can be posted online via social media platforms. The competition closes at the end of April 2020 and winners will be announced after that date. Good luck!
We miss you lots and hope you are keeping safe and well.
With love from Mrs Myers and Mrs Serra
