Good morning everyone. Can you believe it's the last day of term? I'm very disappointed we never got to come back for at least a short while before the end of the school year and say goodbye properly. Please join me at 10am this morning for one final Google Classroom session.
Please find below a link to a range of revision type guides that you might find useful if you feel that your child could do with something extra, particularly over the summer holidays to try and keep them up to speed. These are similar to what we would use in school but are new for the children.
Find below the latest issue of Smart Art featuring contributions from Sitara, Isabella and Emilia.

To the children:
Use your logins for Lexia, Mymaths, Mathletics and Timestable Rockstars. Make use of these when you are away from school. There are many links below which you will find useful. Take advantage of any time you're not in school. Read more, take the opportunity to be creative and make use of the things you have in your home. Remember if your parents are working from home they need to work. This is your chance to show them how mature and independent you can be.
For parents - you may have seen this list on social media but it contains many useful websites to keep the children busy whilst they are off school.
