We hope you all enjoyed a sunny half-term week and that you spent lots of time outdoors and took a well-deserved break from learning!
Today, 2nd June, marks the start of our phased return to West Monkton Primary for some pupils (Year 5 keyworker pupils are only in at present). Our theme for this half-term is 'one look backwards, two steps forward'.
We continue to have a team of staff who will be uploading resources to our Virtual School, we have also provided some useful links on this page so hopefully you'll find something to excite and keep children learning! Please continue to access though the website below:
If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact us via Class Dojo.

The White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from Year 1-8. They will be adding five more each week for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.
Your child could do their maths using these resources each day if you wished- click here to access the virtual lessons. Please note that you do not have to print out the resources.
