.Class 7

Hello, and welcome to the Home School page for Class 7

Here you will find some links and downloadable resources that are most relevant to pupils in our class.

I will try and update the page as regularly as possible.

I understand life will be tough at home so you are under no pressure to complete any of the above. 

They are just ideas and guidelines if you would like to.

Stay Safe and missing you all,


****UPDATE****


Hi everyone,

I hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well. Please keep an eye on the post for Pack 4 of Home Schooling.

Please forward any photos through to Class Dojo
