We were delighted to hear from Meadowfield Primary School who wanted to let us know about the new skills their KS1 and 2 children have been learning in school.
They told us:
‘School might not be quite the same at the moment but it is certainly allowing children to try new things and develop skills in areas of the curriculum that they have little experience of!
