Home Learning and Return to school curriculum learning. 

From the 8th June, our home learning is going to change again. Below are a number of presentations which will mirror and compliment the learning which is and will be taking place in school for our key worker year 6s. 

There is a presentation for English, with resources and daily tasks for next week.

There is also a presentation for Maths, you will need to choose your working level and complete the daily questions and challenges.

The 'Galapogos' presentation contains a number of resources and activities for each week of this unit. It is important that you complete this work before your return to school.

Key worker children will complete these tasks and activities in school.
