Good morning. We hope you have had a lovely weekend. Today we welcome many children back to school but we would like to reassure families at home that we will continue with home learning and support for you where needed. Please keep sending in your photos!
This next three weeks will concentrate on a mini topic all about bees. Children have been given a booklet in their packs that we will fill in over the next few weeks. There will be lots of information on the blogs to work from.
Maths this week will be mass and capacity. Have you got your measuring equipment ready?
