Week 1 Overview - My Family



Please take from the plans what you wish.  We completely understand that many of you are working from home, have other children that you will also be getting tasks for or have younger children at home as well.  These plans are not to overwhelm you but simply to give you a guide.

We would love to see how the children are getting on.  Please send a picture a week of something your child is proud of.  It could be a writing task, maths challenge, creative task, outdoor activity or even learning to make a sandwich for the first time.  We intend to add pictures to the class websites just as we do when we're in school.  If you would like to send any photographs in please email them to


Thank you for your continued support as always during this difficult time.
