Dear Catkins, 

As it is half term, there will be no home learning set this week. I will leave up all the work from last week in case you want it. 

I hope you have a lovely week off and enjoy the sunshine, while staying nice and safe. 

From Miss Cooper

Hello Catkins, 

Hope you are all well and staying safe. For this weeks task I would like you to write a Thank You letter to someone who has been working really hard during this time. 

I have attached the task, some letter examples and some letter templates to support you. 

It is important that, for your safety, you do no write you own address in the letters but use the school address if you wish. 

It would be amazing if an adult could check through your letter and then send it to the person who you have written to. You never know, they might write back! 

There are lots of Maths activties on the Catkins maths page for you to try. 

I have added some science activities - parts of a plant. Have a look at the powerpoint then try the activity sheets and challenges.  

Enjoy and keep safe. 



You can now find all the Maths resources you need for Year 1 and Year 2 on the separate Catkin Class Maths Page.
