Although we can’t directly teach your child for the time being, we have provided some learning tasks for home. We will upload work every week onto the school website and have supplied exercise books for this to be completed in.
We have tried to make the process as straightforward as possible and have provided the answers where practical. There is also a range of other resources for you to access at home provided by our teachers.
The following are some useful sites to support home learning:
