Hello everyone, 

I hope everyone is safe and well. Again, the sunny weather is back which means I've spent more time sitting in front of open windows. 

The next two weeks are our Easter Half Term Break. Which means that we won't be putting up new learning on the website, as you wouldn't normally be at school. New Learning will be put up for Monday 20th April. 

I will leave everything so far on the website, as I know some of you said you hadn't finished yet. Remember, there is a 'General Learning' Section at the bottom of the page if you want something to do. Also, links to website for things to do as well. 

I am still available through Dojo and the email address (see the bottom of the page) if you want to ask any questions, say hello, or send any pictures of work. Remember, sending evidence of your learning gains you Dojos! Mrs Newell is updating the website weekly with the house with the most Dojo winners. 

Finally, I don't have any Easter Eggs in my house, but I do have chocolate biscuits. So, I hope you have a lovely 2 weeks. 

Miss Burrows

Accelerated Reader - You can even do your AR tests at home (find the link to Orchards section of the AR website below.) AR has over 35,000 book quizzes. So, why not try to see if you can take a quiz on one of the books you have at home?

 
The resources are in either .pdf or .word documents. 
You can use your exercise book that we sent home to write the answers in.
If you are working on a laptop, or computer, you can type answers on a word document. 
You could even use the snipping tool to copy the .pdf resources onto a word document to have the questions and answers on the same document.
