Year 5’s Star of the Week

A big to Layla Bamsey in 5GT for this week’s home learning Star of the Week! Again, it was a very tough choice! We have seen some wonderful maths, fantastic written pieces in English as well as art work, DT and fun outdoor activities! Layla has worked really hard on the online classroom and deserves to win this week for her ongoing efforts and staying motivated!

Have a great weekend!
