Thornham’s Last Week for 2020!


Hello Thornham

 

Here we are at the last week of the Autumn Term.  It has been a very busy term settling back into learning and working a ‘new normal’ following Covid 19 rules and restrictions.  Well done to you all, you have worked hard and made some good progress since I first saw you in September.

So here is the final week of learning  (a four day week, as we finish of Thursday 17th December).

Children who are well but have to isolate are expected to continue their learning at home where possible. Please do not get worried if you cannot complete everything. Do what you can!

It would be great if you could send me any copies of work completed or just let me know what you have been doing.  You can leave a message via the school office or you can contact me via my email j.stanley@gf.kwestacademy.com
