HOME LEARNING INFORMATION
As you know, from Friday 20th March school will be closed for a while and because of that we will be asking you to continue your learning at home. We understand that this must seem strange, but we have created a timetable to help you structure your day and help you to carry on making progress while you're at home. It's really easy - just grab the work books that we sent home and make yourselves comfortable. Each day, we will upload a different Maths and English activity for you to complete. There is also a ‘Pick and Mix’ document of activities based on our current topics for you to choose from in the afternoon sessions. Some of these tasks may take one afternoon, others may take longer. We hope that you find them fun and enjoyable and we also hope to see you all again soon.
