Our aim, during this difficult time is to keep children at MPL thinking hard, gaining knowledge and honing their skills. It is important to help them maintain a routine and retain positive mental and physical health. We must strive to provide a consistent, positive point of contact in what will be a very unsettling time for many children. Please check this page weekly for new learning from home activities.
For the final 3 days, here are some fun and creative activities for you to do. You may wish to continue with them during the holidays too if you find yourself board with nothing else to do!

Hello everybody, here is the weekly update of suggested home learning (uploaded on a Tuesday night, ready for the Wednesday). This learning will last you up until and including next Tuesday.

I think it's really important to go, even if you just sit and listen, to help you feel ready for September.
