Hallo Juniper Class!

Compliments of the new season to you and your families.

We hope that you all had a lovely Christmas. Thank-you for all our Christmas gifts, that was very kind and thoughtful of you.  

I'm sure by now, you will have heard that school will be shut over the next few weeks. We do wish we could have you all back in the classroom, we miss you a lot! Hopefully we will be back together soon. In the mean time, we will be using our school website to post this week's. We will introduce our new learning platform next week Monday. We will be in school every day working with Juniper key worker children so we will be available to answer any of your questions or to help you use our new platform.
