Happy Friday!! We did it!


As yesterday, the phonics and maths lessons will be videos to watch, and during ‘leading your learning’ you can choose from the activities on the ‘Learning Menu’ if you’re stuck for some ideas. Remember, you can always explore your learning in any way that you find fun! Please send me pictures as I love seeing the things you get up to!! J


You can contact me via Tapestry between 1pm and 5pm every day. Please write a memo or observation – this will come to me as a note, and I’ll respond to you as soon as I’m able.


You’ve all done a superb job this week with online learning, I’m one very proud teacher! Enjoy your weekend when it comes J
