Happy New Year to all! We know this start to term is not what we hoped for but we do hope that this website page supports you and your child to complete some home learning. 

Home Learning W/C 18th January

Whilst you are learning at home we would love to see all the fabulous work you have been doing. If you would like to share any photos of your work, projects or artwork, then you can send them to us using ClassDojo, and your teacher can then respond to you. Information on how to sign up to ClassDojo has been sent out to all parents/carers, once they have connected to your class and your teacher has approved this then you will be able to share work with them.
