Computing – Last week, some of you began to look at a coding programme called ‘Light Bots’. Unfortunately, as flash player has ended, most of you wouldn’t have been able to access this. I do apologise for this! On a positive note, we have a different coding programme that the children can try at home called ‘Erase All Kittens’. It is a coding game where children have to think about how they can save as many cats as possible with the power of code. You can easily create your own account free of charge and begin your adventure straight away!
The link for the website is: https://eraseallkittens.com/ Have fun!

Music – We will explore Pulse and Rhythm. Watch this lesson to help:

Just Dance – Search this on YouTube – you will find lots of videos your child could dance to

Finally, a note and invitation from our local library to you all:
