There is no expectation to do any home learning during half term, unless you choose to do so! You may wish to repeat some activities, practise particular skills, try some ideas on our school padlet page (link below) or use the many useful websites out there to keep your children busy. However, you may also just need to take a break and relax!

As a critical worker, if you are unable to provide child care and need to use school then please book a place on School's Gateway (PG Club) as early as possible. The register closes at 10pm for the following day and if no one is booked in, school will remain closed for that day.

Some useful websites and resources!
