Please note: There is no set requirement for children to complete all of the learning activites set out below - they are a guide only.

Please also see indoor and outdoor learning activites, which are also equally as valuable.

Should you have any queries please use the email in your child's exercise book. Similarly, if you would like to share any home learning; completed work, cooking, lego models or artwork -  please feel free to email it across.

Please stay safe in this difficult time.

Best Wishes,

Mrs Blades
