The children in Year 1 always start their day with a Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) workout. It gets the class awake and active and ready to start their learning.

Today's video is available here.

Below is a timetable you can follow at home and a guidance of time to spend on each activity.

The children always love to end their day with a dance too. Here's one of our favourite songs at the moment for them to join in with at home. 

Please comment on the blog with any questions you have about the work and to let us know how your children are doing with the tasks and their home learning.

You can also send us photos of any other activities you have been doing to our work email addresses and we can share it on the blog.

We know how much our children love DOJO rewards - therefore, we will award DOJOs to children who complete tasks and share their learning on the blog! 

Have a great Tuesday year 1. We look forward to hearing from you!
