HOME LEARNING

We hope you enjoyed the Easter break as best as you possibly could during this difficult time. Hopefully you took advantage of the glorious weather to exercise outdoors.

Mr Macdonald now has four chickens in his garden and is learning to take care of them. If you would like to help him with this and do some research, he would love to see your ideas. You could adapt the Science work on April 29th to a chicken coop rather than a rabbit hutch if you like. If you are able to do some outdoor gardening this Spring, please do so as it is excellent learning and you might grow something tasty to eat.

Here are the plans for home learning for the next fortnight:

If your child works with Mrs Appleton Jones or Mrs Dyer, a different morning timetable has been made for collection from school or via email. The afternoon learning is the same for everyone.
