Splendid Skies

 

Welcome back to another week of home learning. This week our work will be based on the story 'How to catch a star' by Oliver Jeffers and there will be a few more activities on the topic of stars. The work pack that accompanies this week's learning is now available from the office and don't forget to send us lots of pictures of your child's learning so we can add some team points in their jar.

 

We won't be setting PE activities, but we would like to see you staying active.  Maybe you could have a go at the Joe Wicks, do some Cosmic Yoga or check out some of Andy's Wild Workouts.

Have fun!

The Ahlberg team.
