Useful Information


Unfortunately school is closed to most pupils. We really hope that we will all be together again really soon.

In the mean time, all your work is set on our Google Classrooms. Don’t forget to log in every day to find out what tasks you have been set. Typically you have Maths and English every day then we do RE and PSHE on Monday, French and Topic on a Tuesday, Handwriting and Topic on a Wednesday, Science and ICT on a Thursday and Music and PE on a Friday.

It is really important to share reading with an adult at home at least 3 times a week, practise your times tables and learn your spelling rules.

We know that it is different for everyone at home so try do what you can and don’t compare yourself to others.
