Welcome to Summer Term in Opal Class

Home Learning

Welcome back Opal class and your families to our rather unusual start to our Summer Term. I hope you and your families are all well and safe after your Easter break. As we find ourselves in this unprecedented times with most people having to work from home and all children having to do their school learning from home too. I want to say how proud we all are of you, your parents and carers for being so positive in a national and worldwide crisis and doing the very best we can all do in the current situation.

Please make sure to check in here every week (and daily) on Opal class home learning page for your weekly timetable, which will be posted every Monday morning at 07:00 (during school closure). This will be full of plenty of fun home learning activities for you to do daily during the week.

Please also make sure to visit our blog page to post and share comments or to ask questions. Plus keep an eye out for some of the daily challenges that will be appearing!

We look forward in the near future to when we can all have you back at school and to see your friends and teachers again.  You are all so dearly missed.
