Merry Christmas from the YR Team!

We hope you are all keeping well. We are all very upset that we won’t get to spend the last week of Term 2 together with our classes, but we are remaining positive and we are planning some home learning activities for the children.


This page will be updated with 4 activities daily. If you need any tasks clarified please email. There are lots of resources and links in the tabs above should you wish to do more, the Oak Academy and Read Write Inc Phonics lessons are particularly useful.


We would love to see the children's home learning. You can email us pictures of videos of their work directly to us so that we can provide them with feedback. Please send photos and videos to We will display all the work and photos we are sent on the page so that the children can see each others and be proud of their achievements.
