This week our keyworker children have been joined by 8 year r pupils. We welcomed with bubbles and stickers and all are happy to be here. All the planning, furniture removals have been worth it. Next week we will be opening up to year 1 and then year 6 on the 15th June. I’m so proud of the staff team and children who have made this week a pleasure. We also launched a enhanced home learning package for learners At home with zoom lessons incorporated at home along with competitions and challenges in our Facebook page including singing our give yourself a hug song written by one of the teachers.
