We hope that the menu below will enable you to continue your learning at home for the first 48 hours of any period of isolation. There are lots of different tasks and activities to choose from but to ensure that you are kept busy we would recommend a good balance of starter dishes, main courses and deserts!

As well as the tasty choices from our menu we expect all children to be reading daily and practising core skills using numbots, times table rockstars, phonics play, purple mash and mathletics! Don't forget to get some exercise too. We would love you to upload photographs or copies of the work that you have completed to your class dojo profile at then end of each day.

These starters are daily essentials so fill yourself up with as many as you can and keep coming back for more!
