Haslam Park Primary School

Welcome to Year 6 McKellen Class

Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and well at the moment.

You should have by now received all of your login details for home learning, but if you haven’t, please get in touch with school. Also, please join our Class Dojo as this is a brilliant way for us to keep in touch. 

As we are off school at the moment, I am posting below a list of useful websites that your child can use. It is imperative that they keep up with their learning while at home.
