Welcome to Thursday’s home Learning activities.

From this week, we are asking parents to send one piece of English and Maths work a week,  to their child’s class teacher, so we can see how they are getting on. You can email me any pictures of work to j.turton@ellel-st-johns.lancs.sch.uk. Feel free to send more if you are doing so already or wish to. I will then post work sent on our Friday blog post which looks at all the amazing work we have done in the week.

We have also enabled an upload feature to our blog posts, so you can upload images there that we can then approve as staff. As we don’t want to overload the website, storage space is limited, any attachments are restricted to 1mgb. I know you are all very busy and juggling lots of different things but it would be great to see a piece of work from you. If you are having any issues or difficulties with this please email me and I will be happy to help.
