Happy New Year!

We were really looking forward to seeing you back at school today but as we know now we will have to wait for a few more weeks to meet again in person.

We will be setting you work to complete at home and would like you to post as often as possible on Tapestry to show us how you are getting on.

Year 1 please see the KS1 Home Learning 2012 tab under 'pupils' on the Home page

for your daily work.

F2 please see the  F2 Home Learning uploaded daily on Tapestry.
