Last week, year 5 and 6 excelled themselves with an amazing 59,887 correct answers on TT Rockstars. They fought a fierce and exciting battle throughout the week with Year 5 winning the battle in the final 60 minutes. Congratulations to Year 5 and well done to all the participants for their tremendous effort.
A huge well done to two of our fantastic children who achieved Blue Peter badges for their amazing poetry writing skills. The children wrote poems during lockdown which are displayed in the children’s A & E department of the local hospital.
Take a look at some of the learning that has been taking place at home recently. Thank you to everyone who has sent work in, we really appreciate your efforts.
Tuesday 9th June is Empathy Day 2020. There are lots of fun activities that you can take part in throughout the day here, including drawing with Rob Biddulph, a poetry challenge and a listening exercise.

We always encourage the children to read at home regularly and we would like to get everyone reading for just 15 minutes a day. We love this 30 Day Challenge from Toppsta which your child can complete, choosing their own rewards!
So whether they’d like a movie night, a picnic in the garden or a later bedtime, this is their opportunity to set their goals.
Take part in an annual nature challenge, 30 Days Wild, this June by completing random acts of wildness. Free downloadable packs are available to help you to plan your wild month from The Wildlife Trust’s website.
It was the final week of the half term and yet another week of fantastic learning at home. We are all very impressed with the hard work and efforts of our pupils – they definitely deserve a break. We hope everyone enjoys their half term holiday.
