Computing home learning:

Hi Year 1, 

This week, I've got a game for you to play. You don't need to log in, you can just play this at home. It's a game where you give directions for a character to get through the maze. Use arrows to tell the character which way to go.


Have fun playing!

Music home learning:

Have a go at playing this tune (attached file) on the virtual piano!

The notes on the piano are labelled so follow the words on the sheet and play the note shown above the words. If you're finding it tricky, try singing along to help you remember the rhythm of the melody! If you have a real piano/keyboard/glockenspiel at home, try to use that as well.
