Home Learning Summer Term 2020

 Class Dojo!   

We are so sorry that we won't be seeing you for a while. We are now signed up to Class Dojo where we will be setting work after the Easter break (from Monday 20th April). Pupils will be able to post photos and share their work with us.

All parents should now have received log in details- please contact school if you have not received this.

Try to make time for some learning each weekday, but also spend time out in the fresh air, do some exercise, play  games, get creative, try new recipes, help around the house, talk to friends and spend quality time with family.  Perhaps you could learn a new skill and share this with us when we return!
