Summer Term 
Hello and welcome back after Easter.  We all hope you are safe and well.  

We hope that you had a happy time over the holidays and managed to enjoy the sunshine when possible.  As we enter the summer term we will continue to post weekly activities on this page, until things return to a time when we can come together again.  We were delighted to receive all your lovely e-mails before the holidays and look forward to reconnecting with our classes.  It is great to hear from you at least once a week, so we can see what you have been up to.  We are happy to support your children's learning and if you have any questions or queries don't hesitate to get in touch.  


Thanks for all your support

The Easter sing-a-long and future fortnightly songs with activities will now be in the Singing for All area of the website so head there for new songs and matching activities fortnightly.

As well as these songs we are also going to be offering you some music tuition from our skilled music providers: The Love Music Trust.  These too will be in the Singing for All area of the website.  There is a KS1 session and a KS2 session weekly.

On top of all of that, follow the links for the daily ‘Big Sing’ that will also be provided for you by The Love Music Trust.

Remember, do as much or as little as you like but singing is good for the soul and something everybody can join in with.

Have fun!
