Briar Hill Infant School
It is our Federation policy that we do not set homework during the holidays to allow the children to relax with family and friends, socialise and focus on other wider learning that they may not be able to do in term time. However, in the current COVID situation, some families have contacted school to ask for additional work for children to access over the six week summer holidays.
For those families, we would like to signpost you to Classroom Secret’s home learning workbooks:
Scroll right to the bottom of the web link and you will see a red ‘select week’ button to choose your work book from. Answer booklets are also provided. Select the 2019-2020 academic year group for your child.
Please note that there is absolutely no expectation for pupils to complete this work. The six weeks is a HOLIDAY and we hope pupils will enjoy their free time to be outside in the fresh air as much as possible, exploring and having fun. We look forward to seeing the children back at school to restart their learning on Thursday 3rd September 2020.
The interactive Home Learning Plan and other learning resources are below the images. Open and use the word/PDF version of the Home Learning Plan to use the links as they will take you directly to the learning videos and resources needed each week. Please watch the 'Welcome and Introduction' video first each week.
BBC Bitesize, Oak Academy Online Classroom and Letters and Sounds Online learning website links are also below should you want to complete additional learning or revision of prior knowledge/skills.

Welcome to Year One!
Mrs Padro is our Year 1 Leader
On behalf of the Year 1 team we would like to warmly welcome you to our new website page.
The purpose of the page is to share information about the fantastic learning taking place throughout the year. All classrooms have a creative learning environment givng the children the opportunity to explore through practical activities.
Our curriculum is fun, stimulating and engaging and has carefully been designed to encourage all children to work hard and try their very best. Whether it's walking around the local area, walking nicely around the school or performing on stage, the children will be motivated to use all of their Building Learning Powers to make Year 1 memorable!
