Year 5 - Bowler Hats

                    Miss Mullis 

Hi there Year 5. As we arrive at Easter weekend and week 3 of home learning, you should all be super proud of yourselves! This week saw a heated battle between Bowler hats and Panama hats on TT Rockstars and lots messages and photos coming in, showcasing the amazing learning you have been doing at home. Super impressed that some of you have joined Carol Vordeman's online maths learning, and smashing it - WOW! Don't forget, the next TT Rockstar battle is ALL of Year 5 against Year 6. You know what to do...

Have a lovely Easter weekend. Stay safe, keep smiling - and eat lots of chocolate!
