Welcome to the Summer Term!
Good morning Class 7,
Well, it is the start of another week. I hope you are all well and keeping busy. I rang a few of your parents last week and you all seem to be doing different bits of school work. That is good to hear. Remember to go on Purple Mash, I set 2dos on a Monday morning and check them everyday. It just means I can see what you are up to and leave you a comment. There was a new Y5 work pack to collect last week from school, I hope you have collected it.
Don't worry about doing everything, the most important thing at this time is to stay happy and positive.
Thank you to all the parents who forwarded their email to me so I could set Seesaw accounts up. It is amazing seeing the videos and pictures so a big THANK YOU.
Please also use the links below to expand your learning further.
Below are the topics we will be covering in the Summer term and I will try to link the home learning to these where I can.
Take care, keep busy and be kind to others.
