Happy Easter!

Wednesday 1st April

Good morning Orcas! Here are today’s English and Maths activities to keep you busy. Scroll down further for this week’s menu of extra activities including French, History and art activities.

It really has been brilliant speaking to lots of you over the past week. I will try to aim to ring many more of you today. I can see from our phone calls and emails that you have been keeping yourselves busy in many ways, which is great so well done for all of your hard work over the past two weeks!

Today is the last day of your home learning activities until after the Easter holiday break. Don’t worry though, you can still find lots of ways to keep yourselves occupied at home. Why not even catch up with any home learning you have missed over the past 2 weeks?   

Have a lovely day and Happy Easter to everybody!

I am busy working from home this week so please email if you have any questions or even would like to share the fantastic work and activities you have been doing! My email address can be found attached to your red home learning books. If you do not have your home- learning pack yet, please email the school office who will send my email address to you.
