This Family Learning PDF came through from Thorpe St Andrew High School on Saturday. There were a few free places left on Sunday for the English and the Arts online courses.

Parents – The maths calculation policy has the ways we teach addition, subtraction, division and multiplication at Little Plumstead. Have a look through at some point. You’ll see the example where Macaws are at with subtraction – it’s near the end of the document.
VIRTUAL PE CHALLENGE!
The Norfolk Schools Games are setting up a series of online challenges for you to interact with at home, and join in with other schools. They are trying to get as much involvement as possible from Norfolk schools and they will be on a number of themes. The first challenge is a tennis one, which you can find here:
(Tennis – 27th April)
We will add future challenges to this part of the site (they will be labelled and dated so you know when to take part).
The team at Norfolk Schools Games have suggested you post your efforts on social media. There is no expectation from us that you do, but if you do please have a conversation with your children about sharing things online as we would in school. Discuss both the positive and negative consequences and allow them to make a decision about whether they share the content or not. Obviously we would expect you (the parent/carer) to share it using your own account should you have one. You may feel comfortable just emailing them directly instead.
This is the information they have provided about your entries.
Once you have recorded your entry, submit the video via any of our social media platforms by tagging Norfolk School Games in your post. You’ll also need to include your school name and year group.

I’ve started receiving some examples of your hard work, so I thought it would be nice to share some of it…
Here are some fantastic shots of actors in role as well-known characters from Ancient Greek mythology. Check out the detail in their costumes and the amazing backdrops which would have been part of the plays, had they taken place. It’s a (Greek) tragedy that they had to been cancelled!
