Year 1's home learning journey - week 1

Welcome to Year 1

Hello and welcome Year 1 to our home learning hub.  Hold tight it's going to be quite a journey. 

It's been a week since most of you started working at home, and you've been amazing.   

You'll see at the top of the page, the pictures that were sent in by you last week, showing how your learning journey has continued, and it's obvious just how well you've taken to the changes in our country. 

Can I also say a big thank you and well done to everyone who is using the Doodlemaths app?  At present about two thirds of you are on track for your current target, which is amazing! Keep up the good work. 

Everyday, there'll be a new set of lessons for you to take part in, and a robot challenge from our robot friends to help them understand just what is like to be human and in Year 1. 

All I can say, is that I'm proud of every one of you and hearing about your adventures, seeing your pictures and videos means that it's almost like we still all in the Year 1 classroom in school.  

Good luck and enjoy the week ahead.  There's some great activities to look forward to.

Still image for this video
Your task, supported by your parents, is to record as many different things you can do that robots can't do (NB the robots transmitting to Year 1 have no legs.)

Robots only need electricity to live. What do you need to keep you alive? What kind of things prove that you are alive?
