Dunkirk Primary School

Summer Term - week 1

I hope you are all well and you have had a good Easter break. 

As you already know, it is really important for us to remain at home during this time but we will be continuing to offer our support as a KS1 team as we begin the Summer Term.

 

Moving forward we will be working as a combined KS1 teaching team to ensure that our curriculum stays as exciting and as differentiated as possible. This includes all four teachers from across year 1 and 2 classes. 

 

Every Monday morning I will email you with a timetable sharing the learning for the whole week. However, please continue to share learning and send across emails to me. J

 

Please see below all the learning for this week.  Please note that this will be from a variety of teachers.
