Primary 1 Resources/Ideas

Dear Parents,

As your child’s prime educator you already provide lots of learning opportunities for your children’s education. During this time continue to engage your children in all the experiences you already provide at home. We have also compiled a bank of suggested activities to help your child access the school curriculum. We hope you find these helpful!
