Nursery - Miss Salthouse

Miss Salthouse

I will be using this class page to set tasks and activities for your child to complete whilst school is closed.  This will be changed and added to regularly so please keep checking.


Please can I ask that all parents please sign up to Class Dojo.  This is a brilliant tool for me to send out messages and a way in which you can ask me questions if you need to.  It is also an easy way of sending me photos of your child's work if they complete a creative activity.


Thank you 


Miss Salthouse
