Hello to you all!

We hope that you are all safe and well and have had time in your gardens enjoying this lovely weather. What an amazing response we have had from our new Home Learning activities.  Your teachers have really enjoyed reading all the letters they have received and your imaginative ideas for the A to Z plates have really impressed us all.  Well done to everyone who has taken part and shared your work with us.

This week’s home learning will go live on Monday morning on the Curriculum pages of our website – http://wilton.teesvalleyeducation.co.uk/curriculum/. We have changed a couple of things to make sure the teachers receive the right work and are able to reply to you as quickly as possible. As we did last week, we will have copies of the home learning packs available from 9-12 on Monday morning.

Also, don’t forget daily reading and regularly logging into Spelling Shed, PiXL and Times Tables Rockstars.
