School Closure Update

Dear Parents/Carers,

As you are aware, the school is now closed to the vast majority of pupils but we will like you to know that we are thinking of you and your family in this difficult time.Your child's learning is very important to us so we would like to continue to provide them with continued education whilst they are at home. We will be communicating mainly via 'Class Dojo'. Daily tasks will be uploaded on there to be completed by each child. We welcome photographs and videos of the children's work so that we can give them feedback and award them some points for their effort. If you are experiencing any difficulties or have any questions, please send  us a message on class dojo and we will respond as soon as possible.


Thank you for your continued support

Miss Hardy and the Year 5 Team
