While our school is a little spread out all over the place at the moment, I know there is still lots of great learning going on. Keep an eye on under the 'Home learning' page under the 'Children' tab where I am setting activities for you to do each day.
An email address has been sent home so you can keep in touch with me, tell me how you are getting on and what you have been up to. I have already seen some great work going on. Keep an eye out for our 'Learner of the week'!

This week we have continued to read 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. We have thought about the feelings of the characters and been writing in the first person. Here is the story from Hermia's point of view - look out for our fronted adverbials and similes!
Some more or us have finished our tooth fairy pillows. What do you like about our designs?
We have been exploring states of matter in science and found out that gas is everywhere. Sirui has been watching the bubbles of gas being pushed out from between solids when he added water.
