Hunstanton WB 16-11-20


Hi Squirts,

It was a bit of a wet weekend! I hope you all found some interesting things to do despite the weather.

Well Done to those who went on EdCity last week:

Freya, Nojus, Mellissa, George, Marion, Zainab, Oakley, Dolcie and Indi W.

Well Done to those who went on Bug Club and actually completed some books rather than only doing quizzes:

Harper, Zainab, Nojus, Freya, Ella, Indi G, Lilly, Daniil, Winnie and Cayden.

I cannot tress how important reading is to you succeeding in life.

I’ve also had homework sent to me by Freya and Ella. Thank you girls; I’ll put the photos up in next Friday’s blog.

Learning for this week!

Children who are well but have to isolate are expected to continue their learning at home where possible. Please do not get worried  if you cannot complete everything. Do what you can!

It would be great if you could send me any copies of work completed or just let me know what you have been doing.  You can leave a message via the school office or you can contact me via my email d.hartley@gf.kwestacademy.com
