The work in the folders will be similar to the work being completed in school. Please look at the work and begin with the topic that you remember working on in class or begin with work in the correctly dated folder. If you have your exercise book at home, please complete your work in that. If you don’t, please use any paper that you have at home or type your work, save it and print when you return to school.

For PSHE lessons there are 40 different well-being activities to choose from.
