Happy Friday Woodpeckers,

I hope you are all well.

Please see below for today's learning and all the resources you need.

Keep sending your work once it is complete-there has been some brilliant work send this week. 

Remember today our zoom call is at 2:30pm and NOT 8:45am. On the zoom call, Miss Barnes and I will be asking you to think of an achievement for this week and something you have learnt or enjoyed that you can share with the rest of Woodpeckers. So make sure you have some ideas. We will also be doing a fun quiz or two. 


We are looking forward to seeing you this afternoon.

Have a great day and a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,

Miss Stuart
