Dear Year 1,
We hope you have all had a lovely half term in the sunshine!
Our new topic for Summer 2 is the Seaside! We are going to be looking at a number of different texts and exploring what is above the sea (pirates) and what is underneath the water (the sea creatures!) In maths we will be looking at money, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and continuing with our adding and taking away. We have uploaded your new activities; make sure you send us photos of what you have been up to. We look forward to seeing some of you the week commencing the 8th June; more details are to follow.
We are missing you all,
Miss Farmer and Miss Dean
