I’ll be in touch about this over the coming weeks but for now, here are your home learning tasks for the week ahead:   English and Foundation Subjects Each…

Hello Class 5, Another week on and I’m still missing you all lots and hoping you are looking after yourselves and your loved ones. Hopefully it’s not too much longer til we see each other again – if I remember correctly we were nearly at 30 stones in the jar so a whole class treat will be the first thing on the cards! This last week I have been setting an alarm in the morning to help me keep my day structured and organised. Also, it helped me to sleep better at night as I was finding I was staying…

Hello Class 5, This is the first of many posts I will be sharing with you to offer you a friendly ‘hello’ while school is closed and to give you ideas and support with your home learning. I’m missing seeing all of your friendly faces and sharing in all of your achievements – although Ted is much quieter than you are, he doesn’t laugh at my jokes (well I suppose many of you didn’t either)! Here are some suggestions for things you could be doing to keep busy and your brain ticking over… Visit BBC Bitesize and select the ‘Year…
