Class Resources – 1st Class

18th January 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Thank you for your continued engagement and support. We have really enjoyed receiving all of the wonderful work, videos and photos from the girls. We look forward to receiving more this week and to seeing the girls at our Zoom meetings. This week we will be starting our class novel Anna’s Secret Granny which you will be able to read along online with your teachers. We hope the girls enjoy it!

We have compiled some extra resources, interactive activities and suggestions on our 1st Class Padlet which are being updated regularly:
