Model hearts!

We have already had a few photos sent into seesaw of model hearts. Well done Averie and Cohen for these – they are very realistic!

If you manage to create your own heart, please post the photo on seesaw and we might even put it up on the blog for all to see!

Home learning document – 20/4/2020 – 24/4/2020

We have put together a weekly document to be used if it is more suitable for you at home.

The majority of the content is the same as the daily blogs but adapted slightly to avoid the need for external websites. Some children may require maths that has been adapted slightly so in the document we have produced a separate ‘adapted maths’ section to ensure they are practising work suited to them.

We are aware that moving from one link to another can be time-consuming for some so by uploading a week’s worth of learning we hope we can provide further support to those families who would prefer this method.

Thank you for everything that you are doing at home parents and children! Stay safe!
