During these unusual times our teachers are thinking of new ways to connect with their classes, this is increasingly involving new technology! Please understand that our teachers are working hard to regularly set work for children online and to virtually monitor and possibly interact with the children. This may look slightly different for each class at the moment, as each teacher is navigating their own journey with this new technology. Therefore, we ask that you continue to be supportive during these unprecedented times and not necessarily expect instant replies to queries and understand that sometimes feedback may just be a "like or a smiley face"! If we all work together we will come through this stronger and with an increased sense of community! Happy learning!

Welcome to the Year 5/6 Jellyfish Class page! 

The class teacher is Mr Thomas and our teaching assistant is Mrs Beeching.

Dear Parents and Carers,  

Firstly, a big well done to Jellyfish for starting the new school year off so well. It has been a challenging few months so it has been lovely to get back to some normality together.

When self-isolating, or in case of school closure or any absence, I will post work on this page for your child to complete. Every child has received a green home learning exercise book in which they can complete the activities. They have also received login details for Class Dojo, Purple Mash and TT Rockstars, too.

This page will be updated with activities, news and resources for you regularly.

We hope this is useful for you all.  

Thank you for your support, 

Mr Thomas
