Week beginning – 06.07.20

Hello Year 1 children and parents.

as we come towards the end of the school year, a very strange one at that, can I just say another big thank you to all the children and parents who have continued to work hard during this time to keep their learning going. Please stay positive and remember we will all be back together at school again in September.

Once again, Thank you

Mr Moynihan

For any parents who are yet to contact me in regards to receiving your child’s login details for education city to carry out their maths and literacy work, please feel free to do so at year1@st-annes-pri.manchester.sch.uk 

Keep up the hard work Year 1 and hopefully I will see you all soon.

Also, I am sure as more time goes by, children may have more questions or worries about what’s happening with the lockdown and coronavirus. To help parents to answer any questions/settle any worries your children may have, I have included links to some great stories and information all about the current situation which is aimed at children. Please feel free to read through any of these with your children. 

Mr Moynihan
