I hope that you had a good weekend and that you are ready to do some more home-schooling!
This is today’s suggested timetable:
I have scheduled a Zoom meeting for 2:30 for those pupils who want to drop in and say hello. The first half of the meeting will be dedicated to discussing any issues with school work. The rest of the time will be given over to allow the children to see and talk to each other (and to me!). Pupils can log into the meeting at any time during the session:
Please log in between 2:30 and 3:00 to discuss school work – any issues?
Please log in between 3:00 and 3:30 to chat about the weekend/say hello!

Darwin Science – Earth and Space
This term, we are looking at ‘Earth and Space’ as our topic in Science. So far, we have compared the movements of the Earth, Moon and Sun relative to each other, as well as finding out about the different planets in our solar system.
We have learned that the Earth rotates on its axis (the invisible line that runs top to bottom through it) once every 24 hours. It is this rotation that causes day and night.
