Week Beginning 20th April

Hello Thoresby Class, 


I hope you are all well and have enjoyed your Easter holiday. I'm sure many of you will have been out enjoying the sunshine in your gardens'. It has been nice to see that so many of you have still been using Purple Mash and you will now find new 2Do's have been set for you, as well as a new blog post. I have really enjoyed reading your responses to our blogs and it has been nice to see you leaving comments for each other as well. 


Our new topic for this half term is Fabulous Fashion and we will be looking in History at World War 2, in particular what life was like in our country during that time and the different fashions and uniforms that were worn. Each week I will set new topic tasks so remember to keep checking for new activities. 


I have loved seeing some of your photos of pieces of work you have completed, these can be uploaded to your own folders on Purple Mash or emailed to school to we can keep adding your fantastic projects to our class gallery. 


You may also like to have a look at the BBC Bitesize daily lessons and activities (these look like they are particularly good for GPS) or The Oak National Academy daily lessons (these look like the have some good reading comprehensions as well as Maths). Links can be found on our Useful Websites section.


Keep safe everyone.
