 For additional help and guidance please email             and include Mrs Hill in the subject for a prompt response. ADDITIONALLY - it would be greatly appreciated if you could email in at some point as I have set up Times Table Rock Stars for every pupil to challenge, compete and play using their multiplication knowledge. As well as a class DOJO (behaviour reward system) to reward distance learning. I would need to email you a personal username and password to these learning tools. See Youtube introduction clips below. Please check your junk mail to accept the invite.  


It would be great to receive your rainbow art set as your English task yesterday to brighten our class page. PLEASE send a photograph of your art in your window to


An additional thank you to parents/children for submitting their work. To keep this manageable I will request an activity to be submitted to our class DOJO potentially every other day. Anything additional is a pleasure for me, but we will be looking at your exercise book work on your return to school (hopefully soon), so keep up the fabulous work.


Well done for your continuous hard work under the circumstances! 



Stay safe,


Mrs Hill
