There is also another French lesson for you to attend this week with Madam Elliot. This session will be on Wednesday 12.30 to 1pm – we really hope you can join us!

On Friday morning, this week, we are going to be completing a science experiment. You will need the following items ready for this session - Ice cube trays, water, small jugs, small cups or bowls, food colouring (optional)  and access to a freezer.

This half term school will be taking part in the Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent virtual Three Peaks Challenge. The aim of the challenge is to add some purpose to daily walks and help families to remain active during this lockdown. You can complete the challenge as an individual or as a family team. If you would like to take part, record the distance you walk on the record sheet and return the record sheet back to school by Tuesday 23rd February.
