Home Learning in case of school closure
We will be posting home learning tasks on this page for our class each week. This will consist of an English, Maths and topic learning task for the week. Additional Maths support, featuring daily lessons including a video tutorial for children and parents, are being posted by White Rose Maths Hub. For more information on this click here.
Children should be reading each day and practising their spellings and times tables using TT Rockstars. We will update the learning expectations each week.
