Hello everyone,

If you’re in need of a ‘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

We would love to hear from you so we know you’re children are safe and well and hear how they are getting on with their home learning. Please email either your child’s teacher, rob.matthews@ravensdale.coventry.sch.uk or jo.stanley@ravensdale.coventry.sch.uk
