Good morning Mr Charles. Phoebe is having issues with her spelling shed this morning. It is loading up fine, however, it will say ‘failed’ when she tries to play a game. We have tried it on a different device and it is still the same. Jenson is having the same issue so perhaps their website is down? Can you look into this? Thank you

Hi Lydia. Good listening. I was in fact talking to you all in Year 4 (not 5). I think me talking about Miss Field's TT Rockstars Year 5 challenge to Year 4 momentarily threw me off my stride (It's an age thing). Regards, Mr Charles.

Lydia(about a week ago)

Erm... Mr Charles, in this weeks video you said Year 5 instead of year 4!

THANK YOU!!!! Yippie.

Hello Phoebe. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You have spotted the error. It should have been 'our' and not 'out'. The 'r' and 't' are next to each other on the keyboard and I pressed the wrong one by mistake. 6 extra house points. Well Done. Mr Charles.

Young Leaders

The theme for this week and next week is Young Leaders. The last number of weeks has been challenging for everyone and this is your chance to try and help and make a difference at home and in the community during the Covid 19 lockdown. Remember, make sure you check with an adult before you do some of the tasks below.

Have a look at the 'Courage' document below and work your way through with some of the ideas.

Have a look at the 'Ideas for families' grid and see which ways you can help support those around you during this time.

Read how you can be a young leader at home.

Be inspired! Read about other inspirational leaders and see if you can tackle some of the questions about them.

You can use the postcard design below as part of your Young Leader activities in helping others in the community or design your own.
