Keeping in Touch

We aren’t seeing you at school, but we are always thinking about you. Each week we will call everyone to see how you are doing and if there’s anything we can do to help. You can also message me through Class Dojo, or e-mail Kirsty or Adele;

kirsty.conway@unitycommunityprimary.com

adele.cauchi@unitycommunityprimary.com

It’s been great to see so many of you on Class Dojo. Mrs Burton and the Reception teachers also look on here to see what Nursery children are doing. We love seeing the photos and videos that you post, keep them coming! We will keep posting on here with activity ideas, stories and songs, so keep checking Class Dojo every day. If you haven’t signed up for Class Dojo yet, please let us know and we can help you. I will also send a weekly e-mail with information and activity ideas to everyone.

Everything is very uncertain right now and we don’t know when schools will reopen. We understand that this is a very difficult and worrying time. It is important that you look after yourselves as well. Please click on the links below for some information about how you can look after you!
