Good morning Year 1! We hope you are all well.

We have created a new crib sheet of retrieval activities linked to each subject area we cover in school. Please use this as an idea for activities. Create a timetable that suits you and your family. We will not be checking the work completed, these activities are designed to retrieve the skills the children have learnt so far and keep their minds active. We will continue to post a daily retrieval activity too.

The BBC have also produced a daily timetable of activities suitable for each individual year group. You may like to browse this also. Make sure you take regular breaks and get some fresh air too.
This is a timetable from BBC Bitesize for daily lessons.
