If your child is absent from school due to COVID-19 isolation, here are some activities to support learning at home.
If you need further support, please contact school.
In our class we have 10 boys and 2 girls. Our teacher is called Sophie and we have Becky, Sammie and Jack to support our learning. We have a student teacher called James and an apprentice called Elle. We have weekly cookery sessions with Vicky who helps us develop our independence in a kitchen whilst keeping ourselves safe. We also attend weekly swim sessions with Jo and we are now swimming lengths of the pool. We are a very busy class and always working on our independence. We love learning new things but also like a challenge.
