Thank you for the learning that you've continued to send, please remember to indicate in the email if you'd like me to mark the work or if you're sending it for celebration.

As usual, you'll find this weeks learning links to Oak Academy and other resources. 

I have also added a link to a new physical fitness program that can be done intirely inside and by both adults and children, this week is called 'cardio'.

Don't forget you can log into GETEPIC using your class log in (See PING) to read a huge range of fiction and non-fiction books. Some of the books have audio too.

Also, here are the links to Letter Join, Purple Mash, Fitter Futures and BBC Bitesize

Please contact me with any questions you have or if your child needs encouragement or support from someone outside of the home. I will always aim to respond within the woking day, but it may be delayed when I am teaching in school.
