Year 5 – Wednesday 24th March

Good Morning Year 5!

We hope you are well this Wednesday morning, and that you have had a good sleep and breakfast and are ready for the day ahead. Can you believe it is already half way through the week? 

Hope you have managed to join in with the Joe Wicks (Body Coach) online workouts at 9am. Apparently they are excellent and over 800,000 children have used them across the country. They are a great way to keep your body active and get your brain ready and raring to go for you jobs. Has anyone managed to convince their parents to join in yet?

The weather has been so excellent this week, I hope you are enjoying it as much as you can. Us teachers are definitely enjoying walks, our gardens and keeping the windows open for the fresh air.
