Hello everyone,

If you’re in need of a β€˜pick-me-up’ or a break from your English and maths learning, have a look at this wonderful website: https://www.outoftheark.co.uk/ootam-at-home/

It has a really catchy song for every day of the week, with easy to follow lyrics and a downloadable resource/activity to match the theme of the song.

New songs are being added all the time for the next few weeks. I will certainly be joining in at home. Have fun. Make a note of which songs you like the best for when we return to school and we can sing them together.

Take care, Mrs Russell
