Now we have launched times tables rockstars, and the children have been given their login details, please use this resource at home as much as possible! The children really enjoyed accessing their accounts during our Computing slot this week.

English: Next week we will looking at sending postcards to launch our new topic. This will allow us to practice using different sentence types to make our writing more exciting.
