Congratulations to  our class for their success in last weeks 

Whole school Sumdog competition. Excellent work again guys.

1st place Millie,  3rd Seren, 5th Luzanne, 7th Dafina,

A fantastic achievement to have  class 2 children come in first place for the last 4 weeks. There is another competition starting on Monday 1st ( 9:30am - 2:30pm), keep playing guys and let us see someone from Class 2 in first place in this weeks competition. 

There is a new timetable posted at the top of our 'Home Learning ideas by subject' page  with a suggestion of activities for you to complete in a week. The English and Maths activities need to be completed in the order Monday to Friday but other activities can be completed in any order.

Why not lift your spirits by  learning a song from our music page 'shake my sillies out' and/or 'Beluga whale'. Once you have learnt them there are extra videos for you to sing along to each one.

I am really looking forward to seeing your creations for our Zoom Challenge this week, I know some of you had some wonderful ideas, happy building.

Any problems please contact me through ''.

You are doing some fantastic learning with your families, well done to you all.

Have fun and stay safe

Take care
