We have a new email that has been set up for you to contact us directly. Please use this to ask us any questions you may have related to home learning and the work that we have uploaded. We would also love to hear from the children and see any work they have completed at home! We look forward to seeing all of your hard work!

We have some recommendations that you might find helpful listed below.
