COVID -19 social distancing

The Kingsbury team and I hope that you are all well and keeping safe during this time. We understand that these are uncertain times that we are experiencing and we are here to support you and your families in any way that we can.


I will continue to email you all weekly with activity ideas, useful links and home learning/play ideas to help keep you all busy and sane! I have added some links here on the class page too for some useful online learning activities (some may be more useful than others). 


All the activities that I will be providing and suggest will be optional, and I want you to choose, based on your family circumstances, how many and how often you ask your child to undertake home learning activities.


However, if you would like to show us what you are getting up to then please send any pictures via email or EFL - I would love to see what you get up to whilst you are staying at home. I am definitely missing my little Purple Frogs.
