Enjoying School at Home

We have put together a timetable for you to try to stick to whilst your are studying at home instead of in school.  This timetable can be found in the workbook that we provided for you to work in whilst you are at home.  It can also be found below in FILES TO DOWNLOAD. ( Scroll to the bottom of the page.) We are well aware that this may be a tricky time and thought that the timetable may help to keep you focussed whilst you are having to spend lots of time away from school.


Please remember if you have any problems or just

fancy a chat email:

Complete what you can. The most important thing is staying safe and being kind to others. I am missing all of your smiles everyday and hope to hear from you soon !
