Good morning! I'm sorry there has been a break in uploading new learning. I am now teaching the little Foundation Stage children along with Mr Phillips and Miss Mantel being back teaching too so we will be updating learning three times a week like we were previously. Because of us teaching in school again, we will be making phone calls home every fortnightly rather than weekly too.
