Friday 26th February 2021

Wow it is Friday already!! I think this week has gone very quickly, I wonder if it has for you too.

Let’s start the day by waking up and shaking up, today’s song is a game called ‘the floor is lava’.

Your activity for today is to create your very own wand. To be successful in today’s learning you will be able to use your imagination, construct using a variety of resources and use tools and techniques to join materials.
