Spring Break – Home Learning Activities

During the Spring break teachers will not be posting any new tasks for children to complete and submit.  We think that everyone has been doing great work for the past two weeks getting to grips with our new way of working at home and using Google Classroom.  If there are any tasks that have already been set that your child has not completed they can do this over the break if they wish and teachers will be able to see these after the break.

The learning at home section of the school website will give links for parents to useful websites.  Follow @CarlibarPS on Twitter as there have also been a number of posts about a range of ideas to try at home.

Take care and stay safe.
