Hi everyone,
Well done for all the work that you have been doing. Don't forget that assignments need to be handed in tomorrow (on Microsoft Teams). Remember to check the posts page for updates.


We are currently in the process of setting up phonics groups across year 1 (on Microsoft Teams). The children will be able to do sessions in their groups (mixed with Cedar and Eucalyptus children) with the adult that they have at school. You will be notified once this has been set up. 


Have a lovely day smiley

Hello lovely Cedar Class,


I hope that you are all well smiley. Miss Fossey and I enjoyed talking to you all on the phone this week. It was lovely to hear all of your voices. 


 It has been great to see that some of you have been doing the online work. I have also been sent fantastic pictures of work via email. I would love to see some more laugh. Remember to look at the 'useful websites' folder so that you can use great websites to help you with your learning. Learning packs will also be added on weekly for you to complete. I look forward to seeing all of your amazing work and I hope to see you all soon.


Hope that you all have a lovely weekend,
