(Week beginning 6th April 2020)
We are now starting our Easter Holidays. It’s all a bit strange, isn’t it?
Please leave your home learning packs alone for now.
We will start the Week 3 learning at the end of our two week Easter Holiday on Monday 20th April, 2020.
In the meantime, so that you have plenty to do, we have put together for you a pack of puzzles, jokes and other activities to keep you busy. Have a look below – there's lots to try!
Remember that you can also login to Rockstars to practise your times tables.
Click to listen to free audiobooks. When the page loads, just click 'Start Listening', choose an age range or genre from the top menu and choose a book.
Take Care and Stay Safe,

(Mrs Leese will be building a red LEGO Ferrari that Adam never got round around to!)
You will think of lots more ideas - if you have a good one that you'd like to share – please email us and we'll add it to the website for others to have a go as well.
Have fun! Remember to take photos and send them in.
