Dear parents,

We strongly recommend that children continue to complete school work and daily homework tasks in as normal a way as possible. 

Homework would take the usual format. For example:


  • Reading
  • Spellings-ABC order
  • Literacy Day 93
  • MA Section 2, Test 12, Part A
  • Mental maths label
  • Individual spellings/mental maths labels are in diaries for the next few weeks. 

Below is a list of other useful learning links and activities.

📌 Religion - Say prayers morning and night, sing our prayer before and after meals, revise the Easter story, continue to learn the Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Spirit, revise the Ten Commandments -
