This weeks yellow T-shirt winner is…

 6B’s winner is… Liam J!

I am so proud of you this week Liam, you have been a true superstar! After many weeks at home, you have come into school this week so mum can keep working for the NHS and I know mum will be as proud of you as I am! You have produced beautiful work of a very high quality and you’ve done it all with a smile on your face! I can already see how grown up you have become and I know you are secondary school ready! So please keep it up and keep shining!

Free Blue Peter badges!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/joinin/about-blue-peter-badges

The BBC are giving away FREE Blue Peter badges to children aged between 6 and 15! The badge allows you to gain free entry to over 200 attractions across the UK including Museums and Zoos.

Browse the badges available on the Blue Peter website and follow the instructions of how to apply… it may be that your child needs to send in a poem, a letter or rhyme etc.
Great idea to keep the young ones occupied!

(It’s also worth checking out the 200 attractions on the website as there’s places we haven’t heard of that look fab! 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️)

 

Good morning!

I am loving Charlie’s expedition work! How beautiful is it? Also a huge well done to all of those who participated in the maths challenge yesterday!
Please remember to let school know if you are wanting a leavers hoodie by tomorrow!

Leavers hoodies!

Just a reminder the deadline for interest is now Friday at 4pm. We will not be sending out order forms to select sizes and colours until we know how many children would like a hoodie (the more that order, the cheaper they are). Once numbers and final prices have been confirmed, you’ll turn be able to select sizes and colours from an order form 🙂
