Easter Holiday Activities for all Pupils

Over the Easter break, from Monday 6th April 2020 to Friday 17th April 2020, we won't be adding to the Home Learning weekly pages as we are during term time.

Instead this page contains a range of activities and suggestions to keep your child entertained, busy and learning over the Easter break.

Remind your child that if they are worried about anything or need to talk to someone while the school is closed there are places they can go for support. For example, Childline can be contacted for free on 0800 1111, or children can get support online.
