Year 7 Write Up


Dear Year 7 students, parents and carers,

At Cecil Jones Academy we have tried to ensure that home learning runs as smoothly as possible this week. We have had many parents contacting us to let us know how home learning is going and I am happy to say that parents are finding the current system useful.

This week I have been running daily riddles, questions and quizzes. The aim of this is to continue the community spirit and keep pupils motivated during this difficult time. This week’s winners are:
