Our approach to home learning is continually adapting. The Class Teachers of Year 2-5 have all been adding narration to some of the PowerPoints for our lessons. Unfortunately, due to the size of some of these PowerPoints we have had to split them into smaller parts so we can upload them to the school website.
On some of the PowerPoints you should be able to hear some narration. Depending on your computer, it may play automatically or you may have to look out for a speaker icon on each page to hear the narration. You may need to press F5 to get it into slideshow mode. Let us know through our year group email if you are having any problems accessing this.
