During the school holidays, work will no longer be set on Purple Mash. Feel free to use the resources below (by clicking on the sunflowers) and also please have a look at the holiday maths packs. Keep safe and we look forward to welcoming you back in September.
Hello children and parents
We hope that you are all well and managing to fill your time with fun activities on Purple Mash, Times Tables Rockstars and also managing to get some fresh air. We understand that some children are requesting books they can read so we have put together a list of websites that can be accessed. Please enjoy and stay safe.

Week Beginning 16th March 2020
During these difficult times, we, as a school, are doing our very best to ensure your child's education continues as normally as is possible - even if they are having to stay home from school. To that end, we have put a pack of resources onto class pages for you to print off and for your children to work through. From next week (week beginning 23rd March 2020) children will be set daily online learning tasks on Purple Mash which they are expected to complete and return for marking and this has already been explained to them at school. Please check our school website regularly - as well as your emails and text messages - for any further updates.
