Working from home is not easy.  It comes with a number of challenges which can sometimes make it feel like an impossible task. We hope that you are coping with this new challenge and feel you are able to access some of the home learning tasks set by your teachers. If you need some extra support with this remember to get in touch with your year leader; we’re here to help.

If you are spending some of your time working on other projects that you are enjoying we’d love to hear about those too…

·       What books have you read?

·       Have you cooked dinner for your family – what did you make?

·       Have you written a song or a poem about being off school or about the Corona virus pandemic?
