Spring Term

We hope that you all had an enjoyable Christmas and a Happy New Year! We were really excited to start a new term with you all but unfortunately, due to the government's announcement, school will be shut for most pupils. The good news is that we have lots of lovely learning for you to do at home! Please keep checking the website to see what learning you need to do. We're looking forward to seeing your work!

Keep working hard and we hope to see you soon! 


If you need any support accessing or resourcing the home learning, please let us know. Most of the work can be completed without the need to print off worksheets and can be done on paper, if you prefer.

Please remember to keep reading three times a week and update your brand new home-learning diary. Remember, it can be as colourful and as unique as you like! Please remember to complete your CGP homework books weekly and remember to bring them back into school on Thursday. Keep practising your spellings each week ready for your dictation on a Friday.

Don't forget your PE kit every Wednesday and Thursday and make sure you have the right clothes for outdoor PE - especially over Winter!
