So, after much to and fro discussion with the Times Tables Rockstars man he told me that the main leader-board is based upon the 'studio' part/games. The studio is based on up to 12 x 12. The below leader-board is more reflective on our class as it is based on the gigs which progresses with the child.

23.6.20 I was sent this beautiful tree this morning and it brought tears to my eyes. Noah made our class tree and everyone's name is on a leaf! I miss you all but I am so, so proud of your growth in all areas. Thank you Noah for bringing us all back together is this lovely image.

If anyone is stuck for reading books you can access free ebooks by Oxford Reading Owl on this link. The books are colour banded like the colours we use in school. You can try your child on the next colour if they are showing that they are ready.

Class 2 Bubble is Miss Francis with Mrs Campbell. Each child has their own basket of resources and we have spaced the desks 2m apart but facing our friends so conversations can go ahead. We will be doing our normal 'star of the day' so your faces are all ready for your return. Outside the green crates are set 2m apart for your own learning zones and we have created a canopied area for some shelter. It's all bright and breezy and read for those returning to use tomorrow!
