Hello Year 1,

We welcome July on Wednesday and only 3 weeks left of the whole school year. How did that happen?! We are going to be learning about Australian landmarks. Remember, if you are accessing home learning you can also take part in Mrs Clough’s ‘googlemeets’ at 9.30am each day.  In addition, if you would like a paper copy of home learning, you can collect a pack from school each Monday morning.

We will also be making boomerangs and didgeridoos – Can you have a go at home?
This video shows you how to make a boomerang…Good luck!
The first boomerangs were made from a single piece of carved wood. The carver heated the wood in hot ashes and then bent it to get the right shape. Today boomerangs used for sports are often made of plywood or fiberglass. Their shape can be very different from the curved shape of traditional boomerangs.
