Hi Year 1!!
Welcome to your last home learning week of Year 1!
Before we get into any sort of learning I would like to say a HUGE well done to you all. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching each and every one of you this year and I am so proud of all of your achievements. You showed me that you loved to learn in year 1, you showed me how you could all challenge yourself and you have even stayed motivated when we had to stay at home. For all of those reasons, I feel so privileged to have been your teacher this year.
I can safely say we have all grown and learnt together!
So for one last time this year, give your self a super duper pat on the back!
Theres a little surprise for you all at the end of the blog, scroll down to have a look.
I would also like to thank all of you who have sent any work in during the last 12 weeks of home learning. I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of your hard work and I love being able to see you progress even when you're not in school.
So can we give a huge round of applause to...
Thank you for keeping me in the loop with your learning!
Here are the last pieces of work to share with you all. These are your lists of what you are excited about in Year 2.
Do you share the same ideas?
I'm sure your new teacher will love to read these comments! You will have a great time in Year 2, there is so much more to learn and so much more to explore!
Let's now hear about our fantastic readers.
Our aim in Year 1 is to read for 15-20 minutes a day. That adds up to a total of 75-100 minutes per week (Monday-Friday). As you know, the fantastic website Myon lets me see how many books you read, how many pages you have read and how many minutes you spend reading.
This week lots of you have blown me away with just how much you are reading - its fantastic, and I bet your teacher next year is very happy you are spending so much time practising your reading skills!
I thought I'd let you know just how many minutes you are spending reading, and I'm sure you will be as amazed as I am!

Here is the world template you will need to complete this weeks task.
It would be great if you could keep on practising all the skills you have learnt in year 1 over the summer holidays. Try and keep a diary and write about what you do each day of the holiday. Some days it may just be about feelings and other days you may have so much to write, you could even include a drawing or a picture too! You could also add in any numbers you see during the day, and think about whether you say that number when you count in 2s, 5s, or 10s, you could think about how many tens and ones that number has and what 10 more and 10 less would look like.
Here are your high frequency words too, try and learn these as best as you can ready for year 2!
To sign off for one last time I thought I would write a poem for you all!
I have absolutely adored learning with you this year it is such a shame we had to stay home for half of it. I am incredibly proud of you all and wish you every success for your future in Year 2!
Stay safe and have a wonderful summer holiday!
Lots of love
