Week beginning 11th January

Friday January 15th

Today's suggested timetable is a little different from the other days. We will start with a celebration assembly, and then spend a little time recapping our spellings and maths before break. After that, we will start our new RE topic before lunch and the weekend. Well done, everyone! We would MUCH rather you were at school but have enjoyed seeing you on Zoom and some of your fantastic work. Have a good rest over the weekend, and plenty of fresh air.
