Succeeding on the Journey through Lifelong Learning

Year 1

Hello Year 1


Welcome to our new Home Learning page where you will find your learning whilst school is closed.



What age can my child start social networking?


As a parent it’s important you know that all social networking platforms (or social networking apps, if on a smartphone) have age limits. Some social networks use technologies that might not be right for some ages, or engage with communities that are made up of people much older than your child.



For more advice and information visit or



This Live Lesson will help your child to think and work like a scientist, with a focus on taste, nutrition, and the energy that food provides.
