Work for Ms Clynes’ class 18th-22nd May

Hi everyone!

Well done for keeping up the great work during this difficult time. Thanks again for your amazing work – I’ve loved seeing the photos of some of the lovely things you’ve been up to! If you can take photos of something you liked doing this week, please email it to me at Please keep an eye on our class Twitter page @MsClynes1st for useful links and fun activities.

As you know Zoom Ahead was cut a bit short this year. The ELI have asked if parents could answer a short survey about the programme to give them feedback for next year . If you could fill this out it would be greatly appreciated.

The theme for this week is ‘Summer’. Please feel free to pick and choose based on what suits you. There is no pressure to do everything.

App of the week: Big Cat reading series from Collins. Children can read, listen, and use the comprehension activities. Follow the link and click Teacher Sign In.
