"Believe Achieve Succeed"

Home learning week beginning Monday 11th January

Home learning- Friday 15th January 2021
It's fabulous Friday! Can you believe we have completed two weeks of home learning already?! Doesn't time fly when you're having fun?!! Remember to read for 20-35 minutes of your day and continue to play on TT Rockstars too. Also remember your afternoon is now a 'catch up' session- so if you missed Miss Langley's incredibly brilliant Spanish lesson or need extra time for your Science today, now is your opportunity. Alternatively, the delightful Joe Wicks is back with his PE lessons, Mr Chadwick has also uploaded his own PE lessons to 'home learning extra,' alongside Mr Campbell's fabulous music lesson (which is MUCH better than Miss Langley's!) and even a Forest School session for you to try! 

Thank you to everyone that has sent us in examples of your learning to We have been so impressed by the standard and dedication you have shown- keep the examples coming!
