Wisdom & Faith

Wednesday 22nd April

Happy Wednesday everybody. I hope you enjoyed the work that was set yesterday and you had some time to get out in the sunshine.

I spent much of the day working with my thirteen-year-old, on his school work.

Then, I showed my ten-year-old how to be an expert footballer - he beat me ...twice!

I also watched the film 'The BFG', after finishing the book, with my girls. It's a wonderful story and the movie is pretty good too! But beware as the movie is rated as a PG as the giants are a bit scary!


Q: Why was 6 afraid of 7

A: Because 7 ate 9!


Below are today's activities. I hope you enjoy completing them.

Start your day with a workout!
