We will then be going on to learn about the Easter story, and what this means for Christians. We will be sequencing the Easter story and making Easter cards.
In music we will be learning to play the boom whackers!

Useful Resources for Year 1
Phonics is an important part of Year one to help your child develop as a reader and writer. Here is a link to the sound mats. It is a good idea to practise reading and writing these sounds regularly at home.
On the PhonicsPlay website you can access some games and activities, to support your child’s learning in Phonics, for free.
If your child needs to read a new reading book, you can access online book band reading books for free! Follow the link to the Oxford Owl website and create your own free account to access book band reading books. Make sure you select the colour reading band that your child is currently reading in school.
