Possible home learning tasks
In light of the current situation, we would like to offer as much support as possible in regards to home learning to children, parents and carers in the event of a school closure. Paper home learning packs will be available today for all year 4 children (those children in school will be sent home with a pack). This will provide a range of activities for children to complete whilst at home.
Please keep checking our class twitter page for updates also. There are a great many learning opportunities arising through You Tube and social media platforms. I will do my best to continuously update our Twitter feed to alert you all to these.
In addition to this, children will be reminded of login details for all online platforms that we have access to. Please see below for links to these
