Hello and welcome to Week 6 of Home Learning!

It is lovely spending time with you all at our Google Classroom Meets and seeing the learning you are completing at home BUT it's not the same as us all being together. We hope to be back together again soon so stay safe and take care until then.

Our unit of learning this week is all about staying safe to tie in with Internet Safety Week. Don't forget, being safe isn't just about knowing what to do, it's about actually changing our behaviours and making the right choices. 

It's also snowing (in case you haven't noticed!) so don't forget to spend some time outside and enjoy the weather - send us pictures of snow people, snow angels and just of you enjoying the snow!

 

 

 Due to high demand nationally, some of the online resources may be unavailable at certain times.  If you have difficulties, please complete a different piece of home learning - perhaps from another day and try again later.  Thank you. 

We are also able to offer paper resources/printed packs for those of you whose children prefer to learn 'offline'
