At Catherine Infant School we love to learn both inside and outside of school.
We are using ClassDojo to upload your child's weekly home learning and daily lessons in the event of class/year group bubbles self-isolating.
Parents please download the ClassDojo app or visit www.classdojo.com. Use the QR code in your child's reading diary to access ClassDojo.
