Within your child's year group page (in the Home Learning rainbow), you can find the resources set by your child's teacher to support learning at home during this period of school closure.

Colin the Candleby Caterpillar has arrived!

We would like you to create our very own caterpillar outside CCLS. To be part of this, you need to decorate a stone (be as creative as you like!). Then add your stone to the Colin the Candleby Caterpillar which will be looping around the fence at the front of CCLS.
