Year 1

The suggested timings for the daily work timetable is only meant as a guide.  This is a suggested maximum time you should be expecting your child to undertake the activities we provide.  We are passionate and fully committed in supporting you to provide education for your children whilst they are off school during the current world events, and all of the activities we have provided are suggested. Above all, your child's happiness and well-being is the most important thing.  Use your judgement as a parent to decide what to ask your child to complete each day and if you want to do things in a slightly different way than is suggested - then feel free to get creative with the activities. 

During the day, we recommend that you focus on these activities.  We have added some suggested times to give you an idea about how long each activity should take. Teachers will be updating this page daily to support children to continue their learning at home. Further information for each of the daily activities can be found below.
