    Happy Tuesday everybody. Our lovely children...we miss you already but know that you are in good hands. We trust that you will be reading everyday and feeding your brains as this will help you to achieve your potential. Please work diligently to complete all of your home learning and enjoy teaching your parents all that you know. Work through the powerpoint or guidance provided and then challenge yourself to work more independently to complete the activity section. Happy learning. This week, we will be focusing on:
