Spring Term Home Learning 2021

 

Sadly, with the rise in COVID-19 cases, we once again need to move to home learning. Please see the links below that will take you to our planned activities each week.

 

We will be posting video tutorials to help aid the children in their learning to the best of our ability. We know this no way replaces face-to-face learning. Please contact us via our Class Dojo page if you are having any difficulties, or alternatively, ring the school office. Keep safe and keep being the superstars you are.
