A Message from Mrs Carthey and Mrs Rose

 

Summer Term 2

We hope you had a lovely half term and enjoyed the beautiful weather. 

As most of us are still learning at home, we will continue to add daily activities for maths, writing and reading. In addition, we will also add some creative topic lessons most days. These are adapted versions of our afternoon lessons that you could have a go at at home. 

 

Please keep up the hard work at home. 

 Please do email us on Y5CR@pelsallvillage.co.uk if you have any questions or would like to share your learning with us. We miss you! Stay safe!

Mrs Carthey and Mrs Rose
