Year 1 – Remote Learning – WC 01/02/21

by 24 Jan 2021Year 1

Hello Year 1 and parents! This page is where you will find all that you need for your home learning.




Small group TEAMS calls will occur straight after whole group calls; Mr Wignall/Miss Hussain will ask certain children to remain on the call. These children must stay on the whole group call whilst all other teams have left and the small group session will begin.  For example; Monday’s Year 1 TEAMS call: 10.30am-11am, at 11am- specific children will stay on with Miss Hussain/Mr Wignall whilst the rest of the year group leave the call.
