Good morning Falcons!

I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend and are ready for today's learning!  laugh

 

Below are the tasks that you are expected to complete by the end of today; the order that you choose to complete these is up to you. Whilst learning from home, you will still have your routine daily tasks to complete, as well as English, maths and reading.

 

It is important that you remember to maintain the high standards we would expect to see if you were in school.

When completing tasks in your exercise books, please make sure that you write the date underlined, followed by the subject underlined.

For example:

Keep up the fantastic handwriting and presentation that you are all capable of and have displayed this year!

 

Please also remember to take regular ‘brain breaks’, keep yourself active in between tasks and keep your belly full and hydrated!enlightened

 

If you would like to take part in some daily exercise, to give your brain a break and feel refreshed, why not join P.E with Joe? Joe Wicks will be providing daily P.E lessons on his YouTube channel (The Body Coach TV), Monday to Friday 9am – 9.30am!
