Now the ‘Easter holidays’ are over, we will be uploading a daily power point slide outlining your learning for the day. On these slides we have outlined some daily activities using a similar structure to that of a school day. This is not intended to be followed rigidly as we appreciate that there are lots of other things going on at home. Please try to do a few of these as and when you can. The power points will remain on the website, so you can access them when you need to.  Any additional resources will be clearly marked on the class web page.  The slides will contain links to other websites, so you must make sure the power point is in slideshow to allow these links to work.   I hope you enjoy your daily learning!

Have fun!
