Hello Year 1!
Isn’t life strange at the moment. We’re going to be setting you some activities to do each day to stop you getting bored (and so you can keep becoming brilliant learners). You can find them on the HOME LEARNING tab.
There is a Music Listening project to have a go at with a different genre, style or artist each week. Have a go and see if you discover some new favourites.
Here are also some fun things we have found if you want to do something a little bit different. Disclaimer- all links worked when we tried them and uploaded in good faith. We cannot guarantee they will work all the time or that content will remain accessible.
