Please submit all completed work onto Google Classroom or if you cannot access this site then email the class teacher. Alternatively, you can email us work so that we can mark and feedback to the children. If you have difficulties with Internet connection or devices please speak to the school and we will do our best to support you.
We are adding the weekly overview of the remote learning to this page as well as to Google Classroom. We have added the whole week of learning so you have flexibility of when it is completed as we know many of you are juggling work and supporting your child. When children have been supported with setting up the lessons, they should be able to access them fairly independently. Any misconceptions or wrong answers will be supported by us when their work is submitted. All resources for the week will be uploaded to Google Classroom.
Here are some useful guides which will help you.
