Hello Year 1! Sut wyt ti?

I hope you all had fun decorating your Easter eggs. I received some lovely pictures of decorated eggs. You can still send me your egg if you haven't done so yet. I hope you enjoyed you egg rolling yesterday! 


I have 3 more activities for you to do today. 



At school we would be singing some Easter songs, so here are some songs for you to sing along with.



See if you can do the actions too!



2.  Look at the picture below:

She blinked her sleepy eyes as she took in her first sights of the world around her. With an almighty effort she pushed back her legs, breaking away another tiny fragment of her shell.

Soon, she would be free. Soon, she would have to tackle her next enormous challenge. It wasn’t going to be easy. Her epic journey was only just beginning…


The first moments of a turtle's life are critically important for its survival chances. Why do you think this is the case?

Why is it that  turtles lay their eggs on the beach?

Can you think of any other animals that live in the water and on the land?


Challenge- Soon, the turtle will enter the ocean. Can you draw or describe the moment when the turtle first reaches the water?



3. Let's do some EGGsercise! laugh

Let's do the Joe Wicks workout live at 9am. Listen out to see if Waun Wen get a shout out! It's even fancy dress day. Who's going to wear their favourite fancy dress outfit? 






Enjoy your activities.

This term our topic for learning is Land Ahoy. We are hoping to visit a local Lifeboat Centre and find out about the work of the RNLI. In this topic we will be focusing on learning about different types of boats and the sea through fiction and non-fiction books. We will explore maps both real and imaginary and learn the parts of ships. We will be exploring and finding out about life at sea as a pirate. 



This term in literacy we will be continuing to learn our letter sounds. We will be learning to spell high frequency words, topic words and learning spelling strategies. We will have daily handwriting practice to reinforce spelling. We will also be learning how to retell and write a pirate story. We will learn to sing and chant different sea shanties. We will use role play, puppets, boats and other small world items to stimulate imagination.
