We are now in a very good routine with our Home Learning.  Thank you children for all your hard work and effort - you are doing AMAZING!  Thank you parents for accessing the work, printing it off, explaining it, and working with and supporting your child!  We are looking forward to a time when we can all be learning together back in school but in the meantime it is lovely to see all the photos of what the children are doing at home - not just school work but baking, playing outside and doing lots of art and craft activities.      

We are now in the habit of seeing each other on Teams each morning and this is a great start to the day.

I shall continue to upload a new Powerpoint each day with work to be completed.  I am also uploading a Phonics powerpoint with work for the week.  

Please keep in touch and don't hesitate to email if there is anything myself or Mrs Shaw can help you with.

Just a reminder for children who use IDL:  Don't forget to log on and complete some of the tasks! 

Thank you for all your continued support,

Miss Hartley
