Home learning at home only


Hello Green Class children at home.


If you are working at home you can still go on Purple Mash for work to do.


You can listen to the story

"Ahh!" said the stork


Think about the story.

Where did the story take place?

What were the animals trying to do?

What would you do to open the egg?

Hello Green class,

I hope that you will have a wonderful half-term holiday with your families. I will not be setting any work on our website or PurpleMash. I will instead ask that you all enjoy time with your games, smile and laugh together. Please take a look at this website. You may find some fun and interesting activities to try this half-term.


Stay safe and well, with kind regards,


Mr. Joaquin
