Remote Learning – First Class

Monday 11th January – Friday 29th January 2021


Hello everyone,


I hope you had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed your break. Unfortunately, we can’t go back to school just yet but I know you are going to try your best to work really hard at home until we can go back to school!


Parents, I will leave a list of suggested work for the next three weeks below. I will be giving out the books/booklets at 11am in the school on Monday 11th January. Please adhere to the Covid19 guidelines at this pickup. The list below is a guide of work, and please do not worry if it is not all completed for any reason.


I will leave a small booklet of optional work/ideas in their folders too. A focus on life skills will be very beneficial for First Class. I welcome the children completing  projects of any kind at home that they wish to show me or tell me about when we get back to school. I am contactable at ‘’ for any queries, however small! Best of luck with remote learning and I look forward to seeing all of my boys and girls again in person.


Stay safe,

Ms. Barrett
