St. James' CE Primary School

Welcome to Year 1

Hello Year 1,

We hope you have had a fun Christmas and we are sad you are not able to come back to school and tell us about it yet! However, we have got some exciting learning for you to do at home!

Every day we will set an English, Maths and Foundation subject activity on BusyThings, so please do have a go. There will also be a Phonics, English and Maths lesson on the year 1 file on J2E which you all should have logins for. You are also able to send us photos, videos and voice notes through J2E when you have done your work!

Miss Jess and Mr Griffin will also be uploading some fun videos for you to take part in each day, make sure you take part to keep active and healthy! These videos can be found on the school website under Curriculum.

We look forward to seeing all of your amazing home learning and we hope to see you soon.

Best wishes,

Miss Higgins, Miss Gogarty, Miss Ali and Miss O'Connell
