General information:

Bring your PE kit in on a Monday so it’s here for the week. We have indoor PE on a Tuesday with Miss Lyndley and outdoor  PE on a Friday with Mrs Stone. In the summer term, both sessions will be outdoors. 


Keep on practising your times tables - they will be useful throughout life. You are expected to know up to the 12 times table fluently by now. Practise them in practical situations - if you are at a supermarket work out how much 6 bunches of bananas would cost, or 7 loaves of bread. Where else could you put your multiplication skills to use? 


Read every day 📚 Read a range of books, fiction and non - fiction. Reading really helps our brains grow. As they say, Reading is like going on an adventure without having to leave your seat. 


Those of you who who are learning a musical instrument - remember to practise 🎶 Did you know that music has been proven to be incredibly helpful to us in all sorts of ways? 



Our stars of the week this week, 15th June, are 🌟 Jodie and Emil    🌟 Well done 👍
