Good morning Woodpeckers,

How are you today?


Please see below for the timetable and the resources you need. Remember to watch the tutorials to help you. I have also added extra tutorials if you feel you would like more support. 

Remember there have been some changes. 


1) Once your work is complete please send me only one piece of work a day.

Some brilliant pieces of work will still be put on our class celebration page. 

2) We will now meet at 8:30am Monday-Friday on Teams not zoom. This starts today

To get on Teams: Open the email I sent on Friday 19th February at 8:27am, at the bottom of the email it says 'Microsoft Teams meeting' underneath it says 'Join on your computer or mobile app' and 'Click here to join the meeting.' If you click this link it will give you the option to 'join with browser or download', then you join with 'browser'. 

3) Extra tutorials are included every day if you need more support. 

4) In the afternoons, Mrs Mitchell and Miss Fermor have set five tasks for the week-see the video and activities below. 


If you have any questions please email me on:


Wishing you all a lovely day,

Miss Stuart
