Assembly 21st January 2021

Good Morning!

I hope you are all warm and cosy. Here is a very snowy assembly and I hope you enjoy it. Apologies, as there were a few gremlins and a few clicks and whirrrrrs that caught me out. But just like everyone else – I tried my best! Enjoy, stay well and safe.

Our Weekly Timetable

Hello, I hope that you have all been keeping warm and enjoying the activities and challenges your teachers have been posting on the class blogs.

Just a reminder that we have suggested an order for the day so that families can work on the same subjects at the same times. Then the afternoons are whole school topics so everyone can work together, or work at their own pace and level on similar things. However remember that you can change things around to suit your own families commitments and arrangements. It is also important to remember that children don’t need a device for everything on their daily timetable!

I have borrowed this lovely document from Miss Copeland to help explain the timetable symbols we are using.
