Hi Acorn Class,

I hope you are continuing to amaze at home with your effort and achievement. Did you earn a certificate? These can be printed from our Friday 5th February Acorn Update blog.

I can’t quite believe that we are now in our final week of our toy topic! Our main focus this week is ‘Dolls and Action Figures.’ This week also includes Safer Internet Day (Tuesday 9th) and Chinese New Year (Friday 12th) which will be covered in Mr Cross’ RE and PE session.

Here are our planned activities – Spring 1 Week 6 Home Learning

As always I am available via email (g.tyson@ellel-st-johns.lancs.sch.uk) if you need any help, advice or support. Thank you for continuing to send in lots of activity photos!

Happy learning,

Mrs Tyson x

P.S. You can be off timetable on Friday! Look out for a Funday Friday blog which will be posted on Thursday afternoon!
