Over Easter, we won’t be setting work, nor will we be looking at the Facebook page, but we will leave previous work from the Spring term on the website if you wish to access it.
As well as the websites listed on our home-schooling page, we have listed some more websites and resources below, which you may wish to use over Easter. These websites are not officially endorsed by school, and although some are free or have free resources, others may require registration or subscription. There is no obligation to complete or access any of the following activities; they are purely there for you to enjoy if you so wish.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and support over the last couple of weeks; you are doing an amazing job and we are very proud of all our Dukes children and families.
We hope you all have a restful and enjoyable Easter break.
Stay safe and keep smiling.
From the Y3/4 Team
