A message to you all...we miss you!

Mrs Scully's Rainbow Challenge - When you are out on your daily walk or bike ride, why not tie a bright ribbon or strip of material to the school fence.  Take a photo of you tying your ribbon or material onto the fence and send it into school and Mrs Scully will put it on the website. Hopefully it will decorate the school fence and make people smile as they walk past our school.


We appreciate that it is not easy juggling family life, working from home and completing home learning. Our philosophy is do what you can, when you can, if you can. I have spoken to parents who have been doing lots of amazing things, who have been playing board games, teaching children new skills such as crocheting, cooking and even how to use the washing machine! I have been sent photos and videos of assault courses, presentations and even a home celebration assembly! You are all doing an incredible job.

We have produced some home learning ideas for Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6.  Please access them by clicking the links below. We have also signposted some really useful learning sites. See below. 

In addition to the learning below, the children should read as much as they can.
