Norbriggs Primary School

Hello and welcome to our class page,

 

We've all had to adapt to new ways of working, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say what an amazing job you have done supporting your child's wellbeing and learning during this time. It has definitely been a strange and challenging time. I can finally say, this is your last week of home-schooling! Well done everyone.

 

There are lots of activities relating to World Book Day planned for this week. Please have a look through this page, our class WBD page and the whole school page for even more activities! Facebook will also be updated regularly. 

 

Take care and stay safe. We will see you all on the 8th March!
