Congratulations on a very full and busy half term of home learning. We are so proud of all you for completing the learning activities, accessing and engaging so well in our live sessions together.

As always it is so hard to choose someone as everyone has been working so hard.

Apologies for this morning's live session, we missed those that couldn't join in. For some reason Teams couldn't decide which meeting we were using today. Tomorrow when you log on, please join the meeting that doesn't have the pencils picture. Fingers crossed it works tomorrow. After half term it will hopefully have sorted itself out. 

I hope you enjoyed learning about Valentine's Day and enjoyed the activities. Today we're going to be learning about Chinese New Year. I wonder what your name looks like in Chinese symbols? 

We would like to know how you have felt about learning at home this half term. On the bottom of the blog please find a reflection form for you to spend some time thinking about together at home. Please email back or take a photo. 

Please see below for today's learning grid which outlines which sessions are live and resources you will need to bring. 

Polite Reminder: Please remember not to bring any food or toys which could distract us from our learning in our live sessions. 

Assembly: Please join us at 11.00am for our whole-school assembly. There will be no YR live session today.

See you then

Mrs Counsell.
