Welcome to a brand new week!

If you didn’t manage to send me any of your completed last week maybe you could this week. I have planned lots of different activities including tasks  you can complete on Education City and Bug Club. You can of course access BBC Bitesize online or watch the educational programmes that are on offer every morning.

I will be telephoning parents again this week to see how things are going and if you need any help or advice.  If you need to contact me before please either call the office or email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
