Welcome to the Magnolia Class Page

Happy New Year!!


Happy New Year to you all and to your families.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to see you all and hear about your Christmas break at this time but I hope you have had a lovely holiday and that you are ready to do lots of learning! laugh


Although school is closed there will still be lots to do.

I will be uploading different work tasks to the 'School Closure' button at the top of the page.

Also, you will soon receive login information for your Microsoft Teams account where I will be setting you assignments for you to complete, which you can win points for if you try your best!


If you do not have access to a computer and require a printed home learning pack, please call the office or email our class email address, , so that this can be organised for you.


Happy working smiley

I hope to see you soon!
