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.
