A programme of daily lessons is available at https://www.thenational.academy/ and some of these are referenced within our learning grids. Children can complete their tasks in their home learning books. 

We have received some super photographs of examples of work completed. We are very proud of you all!

Your child can ask any questions they have or share their work using Seesaw. Access codes have been sent home. Please contact us at school if you require any help.
