HOME LEARNING HEALTH WARNING!
Times are hard for everyone, the most important thing is to look after your own mental health and help your family to do the same.
We will post enough work so your children can find tasks they'll enjoy - but we aren't expecting families to be doing all of it! Do what's right for you and your circumstances.
In terms of learning, the priority is to keep reading and number tasks going whenever you can, these things will make it easier to return to learning once school re-opens.

Over the last few weeks we have started learning Spanish. Click here to find a wordsearch where you can find the words we have been learning. If you don't want to print it out, you can use the straight line tool in Word to draw lines to show where the words are. Just go to insert> shapes> select straight line. You'll need to click on this for each word you find. It is also available as a PDF.
Alternatively you could try the interactive version here although it doesn't work on Google Chrome...
Have a look at https://www.bas.ac.uk/project/chinstrap-penguin-tracking/ to see how our penguins are getting on with their GPS tracked fishing trips.
- Which penguins have gone the furthest?
- Are there any penguins which haven't gone more than 500km?
- Can you make a new spreadsheet and chart to show how far they have gone? You could use Excel or Numbers if you have an iPad. Remember to add a title saying what the graph shows, and your name. Make sure that you can see all the labels too!
- Can you insert a picture into your chart to make it look even better?
