Home Learning 

Week beginning 13th July 2020

This is the final week of what has been a very strange term for you all. First thing to do is give yourselves a very big pat on the back for working so hard and enthusiastically in challenging circumstances. It has been a big team effort from each of your homes – your adults at home trying their best to provide you with home schooling whilst continuing their work; brothers and sisters who have shared computers and tables; and you yourselves who have tried your best. So thank you to you all.

Many of you are just about ready to put the pencil down for a few weeks so there is a mixture of work here for you to choose from.

There is one more week left of White Rose Maths. Please click link below.

When we return to school we will have time to share our lockdown experiences as despite there being many downsides, there have been some positives for each child. New skills learnt, time spent with family…

These sheets help us to start thinking about the positives about ourselves, our dreams and preparing us for getting back into the wider world.
