We will be using Google Classroom for remote learning. Our live sessions will be at 9am, 11am and 1pm every day and follow up work will be assigned in Google Classroom after each session. Each of the sessions will be recorded and added to our Classroom so that you can watch them at a convenient time, if you can't join the live sessions.
Below is a timetable of what we will typically do each week.
Paper packs are also available upon request. These can be collected from the school office every Monday.
