An Exceptional Place to Flourish

Home Learning Set 18th May 2020

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you are all well. Here is the new weekly update and this is the last one before half term. Make sure you take time to rest and relax already for the new term. I found a lovely Disney video which I thought I would share with you all, it is at the bottom of this page. This week I have been into school sorting and reorganising our classroom making sure it is all ready for us when we return. I have also been on lots of walks in the evenings. I have really enjoyed listening to all of the different sounds and discovering new walks near my house. If you would like any activities to keep you busy during half term just send me an email and I'll send over a few useful links. Well done again for all of your wonderful learning.I love seeing what you have been doing at home. 


Miss you all, stay safe and take care,
