    Friday 22nd January 2021 Dear Parents  Well we did it, we have made it through our first week of live lessons. I cannot thank you all enough for your patience and support throughout.

I have been thrilled by the number of children that have been online for each lesson and each day more and more of you are remembering to hand in your work so the teachers can mark it and give feedback. Hopefully…
