Hello and a happy Wednesday to you all!
I hope you've all been enjoying your week so far?
Did any of you manage to cook a meal last week or over the weekend? Perhaps you've learned something new? We'd love to hear about it.
This week so far I have been helping my children out with their home learning, and we began an exciting project today of making a 3D Egyptian death mask. It's coming along well!
There are some great VE day activities for you to be getting on with this week and we look forward to seeing what you have got up to.
Have a great day and as always, remember you can email us if you have any queries at all.
Miss Barrett and Mrs Ashby
Don’t forget the NHS competition – there is a link for this in our Resources and Web Links section.
There's also the general knowledge quiz kindly provided by Mrs HP that you might like to have a go at - this is optional but really good fun.
Remember that this week we are focusing on VE Day and we are giving you’re the choice of what you activities you would like to have a go at. You may have some great ideas of your own that you would like to try. Remember there are extra resources in our VE Day resource section (Resources for week beginning 4th May). Have a look at these as it may help inspire you or to give you more helpful information, there’s a great video clip from BBC Class clips, which we recommend!
