Week beginning 27th April 2020   XXVll.lV.MMXX

What a fantastic job you did of accessing our new Google Classroom last week! It was lovely to see so many of you using the 'stream' to chat to each other. Thank you for all of you who sent in their portraits of William Shakespeare. You can see the gallery of all these wonderful works of art on the 'stream'. If you havn't managed to join us on Google Classroom, please do so. It is simple to do and hopefully makes finding your work for the current week much easier. 

Please use the new username (email address) and password that you have been sent to log on at 'https://classroom.google.com/'.

As it is the start of a new term, we have a new topic.  Each week there will be some tasks on Google Classroom you may wish to complete in realtion to our new topic. We suggest you do these as an alternative to your Homework Grid for one or two afternoons a week. 

 Each day you should try to:

Practice your times tables.

Read for 20 minutes and record this in your reading record.

Practice your weekly spellings.
