      That’s fantastic! Keep it up Callan.
      The best way would be to email the pictures to us.

    Elliot has had a busy morning. He started off with the Joe Wicks workout and then did the fractions activity. He particularly liked the practical part! He has completed the handwriting, phonics and writing tasks. This afternoon we will be doing the geography activity.

    We have been unable to log onto TT Rockstars though as it is not recognising the school?

      Hi. Other people have had similar issues with Times Tables Rockstars and Numbots. We have checked and passwords are working and the school account is activated. I think it might be due to the sheer numbers of people across the country trying to use it at once! Keep trying and let us know if you have any further issues.

      • 23rd March 2020 at 2:45 pm

        Thank you, yes it is working now.

    • 23rd March 2020 at 4:39 pm

      Great to hear you’re working hard Elliot. Well Done! 🙂

    We started of with joe wicks PE lessons this morning. Then Kiarah has done maths this morning and then we learnt about ancient Egypt as a family and we learnt to write our names in hieroglyphics.
    We then did the writing activity and wrote how to make our breakfast step by step.
    Followed by some reading together.

    • 23rd March 2020 at 2:55 pm

      What a fantastic first day!
      Ancient Egypt sounds exciting and you are going above and beyond by writing in a different language.
      Keep up the good work Kiarah!

    • 23rd March 2020 at 4:41 pm

      Sounds like you’ve had a very exciting day! I’m going to have a look at how to write my name in hieroglyphics tomorrow. I’ll post my efforts for you to see 🙂 Well Done!
