YEAR 1 - HOME LEARNING PACK

HOME LEARNING PACK - YEAR 1

Hello there,

If you are looking at this Home Learning Pack it probably means that you have to self-isolate for a little while. We understand that this may be a difficult time for you as you are away from your friends and teachers in school – and you have to spend a lot of time inside.

However, we encourage you to take a nice, big healthy dose of that resilience us Hillcrest folk are famous for and do all you can to stay positive. Look out for your family, help out at home and find some time to relax and enjoy being with your loved ones; and do remember, when it comes to learning, your teachers have you covered.

In this pack, you will find two weeks' worth of learning selected by your teachers to help you consolidate skills you have already picked up this year as well as learn some new ones. 

So, find a quiet spot in your home to work your way through these activities. We recommend that you get started at 9am, just like you would at school. Have a timetable to help you through the day and stick to it as best you can, making sure you put in time for breaks and lunch.

Oh and don’t be a stranger. Just because you are not in school it certainly doesn’t mean that your teacher has forgotten about you. They want to see your work so that they can give you some feedback. So please either post your learning on Seesaw or Tapestry; or email it directly to your teacher every day.

If you want feedback on the same day please send in your learning before 3.30pm otherwise you may have to wait until the following day. If, after a couple of days, there is no evidence of your learning at home we will give you a quick call or email to see if there is anything we can do to help.

So have fun, learn lots and we will see you as soon as we can. And do remember that you are playing a big role in helping to control the spread of coronavirus just by staying at home, so thank you very much.

See you soon.

Kind Regards,

Ciaran McIntyre
Deputy Head
