Year 1 you really do amaze us every single day. We love receiving your emails and seeing what brilliant activities you've been up to. So far this week we've had reading, writing, maths, painting, colouring, lego, den building (can you spot any children hiding in the photo?) and even pasta making (Great British Bake Off future contestants!). 

Have a look at these photos, I'm sure you'll be as blown away as we have been. Keep up the great work Y1, we're really proud of you all!

Friday's Home learning!

A huge well done to everyone for all their fabulous learning at home this week. We wish you all a relaxing Easter break! Remember, if you are looking for activities we have a whole school theme to follow - see post below from Mrs Drazek for information and resources. Otherwise, the Y1 team will be posting a new timetable for learning before the new term begins in two weeks time. We will still be checking the e-mails, so feel free to share any fun activities you get up to at home - send them in to our Y1 e-mail. Best wishes and stay healthy! 

Thursday's Fabulous Home Learning!

Another beautiful day with the sun shining brightly, and lots of wonderful home learning going on too! I'm especially impressed with the quality of writing happening, and the creativity, not to mention how resourceful you are all being in your gardens and homes. Well done everyone and thanks for sharing!

Easter Holidays

Hello everyone,

As we know, next week marks the start of the Easter Holidays (but not as we have ever known them before).  We appreciate that some of you will be finding your own ways of keeping your families happy and healthy and that others will appreciate a little more structure and guidance. With that in mind, we are providing some ideas for learning for the two weeks of the Easter Holidays. The whole school community (whether at home or in school) will have the same theme; by doing this we will be able to share and celebrate some of your creative endeavours on our new school Face Book page (Dore Primary Community Page- you will have received an email invite). Please, do not at all feel pressured in any way to see this as a check list or a requirement (no one is checking!). At this moment in time the best thing to do is whatever is best for your family.

 Easter Holidays Week 1     –    The Wind in the Willows (see A4 page)

-      Create a ‘Sunshine’ to display in your windows

 Easter Holidays Week 2    –    The Time we spring cleaned the world (see A4 page)

-      Create an ‘Easter’ picture to display in your windows

 Just a reminder of other key recommendations:

 Watch this space….. Mr Percy has some ideas to write/ produce a song.

Cooking - making vegetable soup!

posted 18 Mar 2020, 09:42 by Aisling Farrell

The children designed and made a vegetable soup - they worked hard to practise cutting, peeling and grating. They evaluated the soup too and gave it a big thumbs up! Although some did say we needed to add more pepper!
