Week Commencing 18th May 2020
With the weather forecast being nice this week, try to make sure you get outside and do some exploring and exercising with members of your family. This week could also be a good week to do some Science, focusing on our plants topic. Visit the Science page for some ideas about what you could do. With there no longer being a limit to how many times you can go out, make the most of this but please remember the importance of 'social distancing' as this will help to keep everybody safe.
