Not being in school today, I still wanted to make sure I did our daily workout with Joe. I promised the children yesterday that I would. So here is a snippet of my workout. Didn't want to bore you with the full 30 minutes! I hope it brings a smile and a chuckle to your day. xxx Please click the youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1NUqLnr27c&feature=youtu.be

or search Miss S's workout with Joe. 

We are currently busy working on the children's work for after the Easter holidays. This time round, we will not be sending home a pack of work as we are conscious of parents having to come into school to collect it and want to keep you as safe as we can. Therefore, we will parentmail a grid of work which can be completed without too many resources. Any resources needed, we will be posting in the folder below. Of course we are always at the end of an email should you require support to complete any tasks, want to share any work your children have completed whether from the work we have set or fun activities you have done as a family;  to provide further work (should you need it) and to just say hello! 

We thank you for your continued support, even more so during these very unprecedented times. 

Stay safe and best wishes.
