Puffins, Owls and Kingfishers (Years 1 and 2)

Monday 6th December 2021
Dear Puffins, Owls and Kingfishers,
Below you will find the home learning for all three Key Stage 1 classes - Puffins, Owls & Kingfishers - for the three day closure this week. There is an English and Maths activity for each day and please don't forget to read with an adult for 20 minutes! You can also choose an activity from the Christmas Fun Grid!   We hope you all enjoy doing these Christmasy activities and we look forward to seeing you all back in school on Thursday.  We will now try to film our Nativity on that day so please keep practising your lines for the show too and make sure any last minute costumes are in then too. We will miss you all and look forward to seeing you back in school on Thursday!
If you need to contact a teacher, please use one of the following addresses:
Mrs Clive -
Mr Dawe -
Best wishes,
The Key Stage 1 team - Mrs Hughes, Mrs Clive and Mr Dawe
