With the Coronavirus school shutdown, we wanted to give you some useful, education links for the children to use at home. The children still need to continue their learning and the following websites will help with that.
Please ensure the children are reading everyday – this is the most important activity for them to be able to write and caluculate – reading is the key to everything. Please read for at least 15 minutes everyday.
Thank you for your support during this time,
The Key Stage 1 team.
