Coppice Valley Primary School

Learners for Life

Apple Class Year  3 & 4

Year 4 learning here!

As school is partially opening for specific year groups, all of our teachers are needed in school to plan and teach the returning children. Therefore, home learning will look a little bit different from now on. We will now be using the Government's Oak Academy and will post your timetable of work for the week on our class pages. If you have any questions regarding the work that has been put on please email where Mrs Knowles will be picking up emails.

Please only use this email address to contact Miss Hawkins where a response is not urgent as we cannot guarantee that it will be checked daily. But feel free to send anything that you wish to share with her. 

If your child's circumstances have changed in any way during this period away from school then please email the class teacher on the class account above.
