► MONDAY'S TIMETABLE
Good Morning Year 1
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and a super half term holiday, I can't wait to hear about what you have been doing! I also hope you have recharged your brains ready for another busy week of home learning. This week is week 7 of our home learning (it's going so fast!) and I want you all to continue to work hard at home for your grown-ups. Remember to send me lots of lovely updates via seesaw so I can continue to see the amazing things you are doing at home.
During the half term holiday, I went into school to tidy some things up (you all know how messy I am!) and I took George with me. While in the classroom he asked me if he could share a little message with you on the board so here it is...He misses you all a lot and can't wait for you to watch this weeks phonics lessons!
ZOOM Tuesday 23rd February at 11am - 11.45am
This will be a 'social/well-being meeting' where you can all come along and have a chat to eachother, we will play some games and maybe have a dance or a go noodle too! It would be really nice if as many of you as possible came along to join the meeting as I am sure your friends would love to see you. Please bring along something that you can show me and your friends as we will begin our meeting with a show and tell.

In English this week, we are going to be looking at a story all about a young girl called Emma Jane who loves exploring in her aeroplane and she goes to lots of different places and picks up lots of animals along the way. The story is called 'Emma Jane's aeroplane' by Kate Haworth and illustrated by Daniel Rieley.
Today I would like you to watch the story being read to you by Mrs.Faux-Conduit and then answer the questions attached in the document below. You can either print the questions off and write your answers or answer them verbally and have a discussion about the answers with your grown-ups (you could record your answers on video and sent them to me on seesaw if you wanted to).
I hope you enjoy this story!
