We are really keen to have some photos of what your child has been up to during the closure of the school, particularly anything creative. We would love to see posters, drawings, poems, thank you cards to the fantastic NHS and key workers who are making sure everyone is looked after and safe.
The photos do not have to be of your child but of the things that they have created. These photos may then be chosen to be published on Twitter.
If you are happy to share any of these creative masterpieces, please sent them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the closure of the school, please find a number of useful websites that will support your child's learning at home. It is very important that as a parent you set up a time table for your child to learn; this is very crucial in terms of actively learning without any distractions.
Please get your child to read everyday, also ensure that they are learning their times tables.
