International Mandela Day - 18th July

Watch the videos below.

There are also some lovely South African colouring sheets and dot-to-dots (you need to count to 100!)

Look back over the weeks and see if you have missed anything, or would like to revisit something you've done before.

It is always good to review the phonics, this will help you when you start Year 1.


School Trip

We were planning two school trips during the remainder of the year, unfortunately the lockdown stopped this, but I thought you might enjoy some virtual trips to: an aquarium in Spain, a zoo in America and theme parks in various places! 

This is the last of our on-line home learning posts before the summer holidays.


Keep reading and exploring life around you - learning can happen in many different ways!

Stay safe and try to make a difference everyday.

We will see you again in September when you start Year 1!
