Shark Class - Mr Saul

Welcome to SHARK CLASS
 
*Update 15th April 2020*
 
Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and coping with being stuck in your houses. It was nice to speak to you all this week. Our topics for the summer term can be found on this page and so you can use them to base your learning around.
 
Parents - if you are unsure as to what year group your child is working at or if or you need any advice, feel free to contact us:
teachingsupport@orretsmeadow.wirral.sch.uk
 
This is a difficult time for everyone so please take a relaxed approach to any home learning and ensure that safety and physical and mental health are our priorities. 
 
Take care of yourselves and hopefully see you soon!
 
Mr Saul
 
 
As promised here are some links to resources for home learning (Woo!):
 
Our usual learning portals will be updated with individual task for the children and log-ins should be in home-school books.
 
 
 
https://www.purplemash.com/sch/orrets Purple Mash - a brilliant resource with a huge variety of subject content, tools, games and challenges. Interactive, fun and allows (safe) communication between pupils.
