Hello everyone!

It was wonderful to see you all again after the Christmas holidays with your lovely smiling faces.

Below you will find our online work for you to complete. The activities are as practical as possible for effective home learning. Many of the tasks have options for you to choose the level your child is working at. Please attempt the activities, you may be surprised at how well your child copes. Keep any work or photographs so they can be documented at school.

It would be great to see some of your work and photographs, email below so we can showcase them in our gallery for all your friends and teachers to see.


We hope to see you all very soon.
