We hope you all had a restful weekend and are ready for another great week of learning. Each day there will be Maths, English, Spelling and Reading to complete as well a topic lesson.

All of your work for today has been set for you on Purple Mash today. There are several vides for you to watch and then task to complete, based on this learning. If you have any problems or questions, please do keep in touch with us vis the emails below.

Remember to keep yourself active throughout the day and take some well-deserved brain breaks!
