We hope you have had a lovely half term - it certainly looks like you have from all the messages and photos that we have received! The weather has been fantastic! I'm sure there have been lots of paddling pools out! Thank you for your letters - we've loved reading them.
Some of you will be returning to school over the next few weeks - which is very exciting. We can't wait to see you! Have a look at the Return to School Presentation on the Curriculum page to see what might be a bit different when we do return and what we will be doing to keep safe. We will write to you this week with more details about what your school day will look like.
Remember that daily lessons are still available to dip into on BBC Bitesize, Oak National Academy and White Rose Home Learning. The Reading Comprehension lessons are proving popular with the Year 2s. We are going to use some of the Oak Academy lessons for Year 2 maths this week.
Please read English Week 6 to guide you through this week's activities.
