Current Learning

Dear Parents and Carers of Backshall and Irwin Class,


School work will be added here by 9am each morning while the school is closed, just click on the day of the week for that information.  Please remember that there are lots of other things that your children can do to learn; like baking, being helpful with chores and making sure their bedroom is tidy.  Helping in the garden,  or planting some seeds.  It is important that they have time to play, use their imaginations, laugh, sing, play board games, draw pictures and stay active.  We look forward to seeing what you have been up to- Feel free to send your pictures or short video clips to us on the Foundation e-mail address provided in your blue books.
