I would like you to think of things that you are looking forward to about 2021 and email me through your school gmail account. Just to let you know my gmail address is agraham@ellelstjohns.school

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to email me either on a.graham@ellel-st-johns.lancs.sch.uk or agraham@ellelstjohns.school as I will be checking both accounts.


Topic: Rivers & Mountains.

Name three rivers nearest to you. Find out where they start and lead and how long they are.


Today I would like you to turn off the TV/computer/tablet or phones and go outside and do 20 minutes of exercise which raises your heart rate.  This can be anything from jogging, skipping, cycling or playing tig with your siblings/family. Remember that the weather is no excuse! Wrap up and with the exercise you will soon be boiling hot.   Enjoy ???

That’s all for today.  I will be in touch tomorrow.

Stay safe.

Mrs Graham.
