A message from Mrs Fairhurst


Hello to all our Year 1 children and families,

Firstly I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone for your support over the last week and for logging in to your online learning accounts, I am so proud of each and every one of you.  Whether you are going on our online learning platform, using the CGP books, baking or even getting out and about for walks we would love to see it here in school. So please don't forget to send me any work/photos to rebecca.howarth@sthelens.org.uk.

If you need anything at all please to not hesitate to contact me but I will also be calling you for a catch up next week.

Lots of Love xx

   In Science we have a new question we are focusing on:

                                                                                 Can you leap like a frog? 

Children work with a partner to look at picture cards or videos of a range of animals, including mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and fish. They think about and identify anything that makes each animal special. Children put their own abilities to the test to see which features and abilities they have in common with any of the animals and which are unique.
