In case your child is at home due to illness, please continue to access purple mash and primary essence to update work they have been completing at home, as I will continue to check this. Please also find below previous home learning timetables and home learning grids. You are free to access these as and when you need too. There are also lots of helpful links to other websites too.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of Nursery staff.

Thank you,

Mrs Lalor
