A massive hello to our Year 1 Sacriston Stars!!! 

Hope you are all enjoying learning from home and keeping busy with your family.  Check out the links below for some really fun ideas to keep both your minds and bodies healthy - make sure you keep checking back as we will be adding many more interesting and enjoyable ideas for you to try! 

We are super proud of the work you have produced so far and can't wait to share it with your classmates.  Please continue to keep your brains busy by logging into Purple Mash, Ed Shed and NumBots - remember to write a comment when you save your work so we can keep in touch! It really makes our day reading your wonderful comments 😀

This is a very strange time for us all and we miss each and every one of you so very much. We miss your delightful smiles, laughs, singing, games and most of all - our awesome dance circles! 

Make sure you are as helpful at home as you are in school! 

Stay safe and we will see you all soon!
