This next one is music, exercise and fun all mixed into one.. coming from Ollie Tunmer the former STOMP cast member.


Rainbow Art Challenge


Join the nation on the rainbow challenge for a bit of artwork tomorrow.


  • Pupils from across the country have shared their pictures of rainbows as they begin their first week of home schooling
  •  The viral #rainbowtrail iniative aims to spread hope and positivity, as well as giving children something to look out for on their daily walks
  • It pledges support to staying inside during the corona pandemic along with the hashtags #stayhomesavelives and #staysafestayhome


Poppy and Mrs Takacs joined the challenge today.




We hope you have all had a restful weekend. To kick start your first day of home learning we are adding a couple of links to be done alongside your home learning packs.


The first to keep the oxygen running and your amazing brains pumping is Joe Wicks LIVE PE sessions- daily at nine O'clock from the comfort of your own homes.


The second is live maths lessons with a 'guru' in Primary Maths. We use his materials regularly in Year 5/6 and he really pushes reasoning and problem solving. He will also be offering 'live' maths lessons.


Thinking of you all and more updates to follow.
