Afternoon Activities

Summer 2nd Half - 1st June 

If we were all together in class we would be having a geography focus this half term.  We would be looking at map skills, our local area and comparing our locality to somewhere different.  So, we have added some activities that you may enjoy while you are at home.  If you have other ideas around this topic, please send us photographs of you doing it as your friends may also enjoy it!  We hope some of these activities would link in with walks or biking that you might be doing!
