Friday 15th May

We can’t quite believe that it is the end of the week already! We have had so many brilliant pieces of work sent in and we’re very proud of how you are all getting on at home. Here are just a few of the amazing things you have been getting up to!

Monday 11th May

Good Morning,

We have been working very hard behind the scenes and will announce some changes this week to how things are done. Until then, your work is on your class pages, but we are asking you to use BBC Bitesize daily for Maths for a little while instead.

We hope you are all well and are missing you all lots.

This week in Foundation they will be looking to see what Superworm has been up to – Can you see where he has been?

I am happy to let you know that today he has made himself a new friend …

It is more likely that Bean (one of our home school cats) thought Superworm looked super comfortable!

Thursday 7th May

Good Morning – Sorry for the lack of messages – as some of you may know we are having a few problems with emails and the website. I am learning lots of new things!

We have been working very hard in the background and will be changing things for next week – watch this space!

Happy Monday! I recently discovered a book called ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Drew Daywalt. Perhaps you’ve already read it! I really enjoyed hearing it for the first time and thought it was very funny. Click here if you’d like to give it a watch. Let me know if you like it as much as I do!
