Home Learning

For those not in school, the daily tasks are set via Class Dojo. There is no home learning project for this half term. However, please continue to learn the Year 5 and 6 set spellings.

Star Work of the Week

This has been temporarily suspended but will return at some point. Who will it be?



The door to Juniper will open at 8:40am and finish the day at 3:10am. You will be greeted by Mrs Hardy, Miss Stewart or Mrs Dunmall. Children will sanitise their hands as they enter the building.


Please ensure your child comes to school with enough layers to stay warm as the classroom must be well ventilated. We also recommend having a coat in school every day as children will be going outside daily.
