We have been having fun exploring the online programs Mathletics, Spellodrome and Readingeggs. These are really beneficial to aid your child’s learning. Remember these are available to your child all summer and are great to keep them learning!
As you know our fabulous Mrs Bakker is also a teacher at The Mencia. She has arranged a special project with her TTO class. They have been matched with a student from Year 2 and will be writing a special book for them. They started this project by interviewing their partners. They found out all about them, they will use information in the books which they will make for them.
