Year 5 – Thursday 26th March

Good Morning Year 5!

We hope you are well and have been enjoying the beautiful weather this week. Miss T managed an hour and 10 minutes walk yesterday (and now has blisters). Did anyone else manage a walk?

We have heard from Maddie about another amazing resource that we wanted to share with everyone. Every morning at 11am, David Walliams is uploading an audio recording of himself reading a short story from his World’s Worst Children book, which is available to listen to for free. So if you fancy listening, they will be available from 11am each day at

I hope you are still enjoying the Joe Wicks workouts, Miss T had a go at one of his 20 minute work outs yesterday and struggled, so well done for those of you who manage the whole half an hour, you must be knackered.

Hope you have a good day and continue to stay positive and smiley.
