Week 8 May 11th

Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend and were able to celebrate VE Day in some way. We were both out in our road for the 2 minutes silence and then the 'all clear siren' was sounded. We then enjoyed scones and cake in our own gardens. Lots of our road had bunting or flags on display.

Have you looked at the staff video on the main Home Learning page yet? If not, do have a look as it is our message to you all. We both loved seeing all the staff as we have missed everyone. Ms Birch is very clever and joined all our video clips together.

Keep sending the emails and photos - give us permission to use any with you in them and we can post them up.

Hello Class 3 and welcome back to our home learning activities!

We hope that you had a good Easter holiday and enjoyed the lovely sunshine, spending lots of time outdoors. We have both been busy with walks and enjoying time in the garden. It has been a good opportunity to turn out cupboards and do all those tidying jobs you never seem to find time for!

As our time away from school continues for the foreseeable future, we are again posting work for you to complete at home so that you keep practising all the many skills we have been using in class.

You will need to press 'DOWNLOAD DOCUMENT' to see the work clearly. As always, make sure you take time to read instructions and look at any examples given. We have included the answers to some of the work - make sure that you have a go and do as much as you can before you check them!

Remember to email us examples of your work or photos of you doing any of the many activities you are enjoying whilst at home. We both read all your messages and chat to each other about what you have done before we then send a reply.

Take care everyone
