Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed spending time with your families.  This wasn't the way I wanted to wish you all lots of love, luck and happiness for the New Year, however I guess this is how it has to be for now. 


It was lovely speaking to most of you last week and I really appreciate your support and kind words during these unusual times, by working together we can ensure your child gets the best learning experience possible.


Each week I will add the activities I would like you to work through together, these will be a mix of written and practical activities.  Please take photographs (if you can) and put work completed in your home learning books.  We will keep in touch through our twice weekly Teams sessions and through the school blog.  I am very excited, if a little nervous for our first session on Monday at 9:00 o'clock. 


Children, be good for your parents, make sure you listen and be the shining stars you are in school.


Take care, have fun and stay safe.


Love Mrs Wright xx
