Thank you to everyone who is trying so hard with home learning (including parents and carers), I have been sent some fantastic work again this week which I have posted on the Class Story page on Class Dojo.  You can now use the Class Dojo page to send me work and messages, any work sent will be given a class Dojo.

I have also seen some of you on my daily walk with my family, it's been lovely to say hello and see you happy, healthy and enjoying the fresh air.

Please also have a look at the Children's Health and Wellbeing Survey children in Year 5 and 6 have been asked to complete-scroll down to see the details (below this week's home learning timetable).
