Room 5 June 22nd-26th

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. It was great to have a quick chat with you all while you were collecting your childrens’ books.

We will continue to focus on getting outdoors and being active throughout this month. I was very impressed to hear that many of you have begun cycling over the last few weeks. While many more have learnt some cool new outdoor games.

As always, please do not feel any pressure to complete all of these activities.

 

If you would prefer to print work rather than completing screen-based work, please pick and choose what you would like to do from this folder.
