Congratulations to  3 members of our class for their success in our Whole school Sumdog competition. Excellent work girls.

A fantastic achievement to have 3 people in class 2 in the top 5 places for the whole school. There is another competition starting on Monday 11th, keep playing guys and let us see who can make the  top places in this weeks competition. 

Look out for our new Summer learning project  with some exciting ideas for activities and also take part in Zoom challenge 3 (click on Zoom Challenges). 

It is great to see the photographs that you send me with pictures of all the things that you have been busy doing during your time at home. Don't forget to look through the home learning week pages and see what your friends have been doing. It might give you some ideas too.
