Thursday 25th June
Yesterday was incredibly hot and such a beautiful day. At school we spent quite a lot of the day outside. Did any of you get your paddling pool out in the garden? As it is so sunny and warm now please remember to drink lots of water. You must also apply sun cream regularly.
Today’s theme for Thursday is: Thirsty Thursday
The weather is getting hotter. What is your beverage of choice?
Have a great day!
Miss Barrett and Mrs Ashby

Start your day with an active start. There are lots of options for you:

- Synonyms – (words that have a similar meaning)
- Research activity: What other words can you think of that have a prefix of ‘e’ – this prefix is from Latin and it means out/away. Remember it’s not every word beginning with an ‘e’ they would need to have the meaning of out/away so you must check the dictionary definitions!

You will need a dictionary and a thesaurus for these activities, if you don’t have one use an online dictionary and thesaurus.
