Homework:

Using Google Classrooms Red class have been set optional homework to do over Half Term. Your child has been given a login and password which you can find on the inside page of their Reading Record. Please see the sub page named 'Home Learning' and 'October Half Term Homework' on the school website for more information. 

 

It has been a wonderful first Half Term back and I am extremely proud of how well Red class have adapted to their new school day! It has been so lovely to be back doing my job in a classroom rather than over email or zoom!  I am very grateful for the continued support I receive from all of you.

 

Have a wonderful half term and I look forward to seeing you next week.
