Week beginning 22nd February. 

Hello everyone.  I hope you have all had a lovely break over half term. Spring is certainly in the air at last. Birds and singing and bulbs in the garden are appearing. 


Everything you need for your learning this week is here for you or in your class pack. I hope you enjoy them. 


If you have time, do take a look at the PowerPoints we made about the planets in class. Remember to watch them as a slide show so you can see all the animations and sounds we have added.

Take care and see you soon.
