Information and support for parents
We are now using ClassDojo to connect with families, share classroom moments, and provide class timetables with some activities that could be done at home. It is a really useful way of communicating with your child’s teacher. Please join: You can find out what to do here.
Please view our curriculum for further information.
The following links to websites will also allow your child to continue with their learning at home. Some websites may require personal passwords which have already been sent home with your child. There are also worksheets here that you can download – you don’t always need a printer, just write down any answers on paper instead.
