Picture Perfect

When you are out and about today, this weekend or over the holidays, take a picture of one of your favourite places to go. Try to take the best photo you can. Send it in and tell us why it is your favourite place.  We can then pass these on to Miss Kendall so she can see all of your favourite places and get to know you a little bit more.

Friday Challenge: wc 6.7.20



We would usually have a Sports Day in school before the summer holiday. As it isn't possible to do one this year, you can do your own at home with your family. Why not come up with your own team name...

Have a look at the activities below and the points you could win. I wonder who in your house will be the overall winner. 

Have a look at the home learning page and activities to see more sporting activities throughout the week.
