This year Y1 were involved in the Young Leaders award. There is now an at-home section which focuses on character development and this is open to all children in school. You may wish to have a go at some of these activities over the summer. The website is https://www.archbishopofyorkyouthtrust.co.uk/yla-at-home
We hope that you all have a great summer.
Spring Half-Term Holiday
Well done everyone for all your fantastic work over the last nine weeks. It has been wonderful to see each year groups class page containing all the home learning, photos and videos you have emailed. Thank you for sending these in and keep sharing your learning with your class teacher.
There will be no additional home learning added to each class page during half term (week commencing Monday 25th May) so please take this time to recharge your batteries and enjoy a well deserved rest.
You can still access resources during this time on the website or you may want to see how many of the tasks you can complete below.
1. Arrange a group call with your friends and family
2. Play your favourite board game. Cluedo, Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders
3. Read a book. Read a magazine or newspaper.
4. Play a card game. Snap, Uno or Dobble
5. Make a model out of recycled materials
6. Design your own board game

Following the announcement by the Government on Sunday, we are awaiting further guidance and advice from the Government and Local Authority about what this means for our school. When we have received this and have a clear plan, we will communicate with parents and carers.
It will be difficult to accommodate three year groups whilst maintaining the current social distancing guidelines and therefore any return to school may be staggered or part-time. We will keep you informed.
Here's a challenge for you all...
On Thursday the Church of England’s ‘Faith at Home’ initiative was launched.
As part of this launch, we were treated to the attached song:
Please take a look - it is a song that your children can listen to and sing at home, and when we get back to school, we can all have a go at singing it together! Or maybe we can get the whole school doing a virtual choir!
