Love to Learn
There are two MyMaths activities for the children to complete and can the children pick 10 words from the spelling list below that haven’t picked before!

In English, the children will be writing a diary entry of the events throughout the book and planning and writing their own newspaper articles.

Safer Internet Day Video Wall
Safer Internet Day 2023 is on 7th February 2023, and will be celebrated with the theme “Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life online”.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day sees thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
As part of the Safer Internet Day 2023 campaign, we want to hear young people’s voices about their lives online.
We have created a video wall on our website where any young person aged 7-18 can upload a short film they have created about their online experiences – what they like, what they don’t like and what they would change if they could on the internet.
