‘Creating Opportunities’

Home Learning

In the current uncertain circumstances, we are sending daily home learning tasks by email for children to do if they are unable to come to school. We hope you find these useful to help support your child's learning in this time. There are lots of different activities but feel free to adapt the resources to suit your child's needs. Be creativity and let your imaginations flow! It will be lovely to see photos and videos of what the children get up to on Tapestry. We can also be contacted through Tapestry if you have any questions.
