Dear Parents and Children,
I hope you are all well. I am thinking of you during these uncertain times and I am looking forward to seeing you again very soon.
On this page I have listed key websites, under subject headings, for additional activities and educational games that the children are familiar with.
On the star pages titled with week numbers, I will regularly upload challenges and activities for you to enjoy. These are in addition to the home learning packs provided for each child.
TheSchoolRun is a very useful website that gives you all the tools you need to understand what and how your child is learning in primary school. Here is the link for year one https://www.theschoolrun.com/year-1 .
It is a great task to take on your child's education and I thank you all for your support. Please stay safe and well.
