Myself, Miss Taylor and Mrs Donnison have been working on ways that we can interact other than this webpage. We have come up with the idea of doing Zoom online lessons in groups of 6 starting on Monday. Please show your parents the letter at the bottom of the page for more information.

Hello Everyone!

I want to start off by telling you about my day yesterday. A couple of friends and I walked all the way to Tynemouth! It's something we've talked about doing for a while but had to wait for the weather to cool down with me being ginger and all! It took us 2 hours to walk the 10km there and we then walked half way back! It felt amazing to 1) be out the house, 2) be with friends and 3) to do something different. I hope you guys are doing the same: it can really make a difference to how you are feeling.

Your optional maths for today is in two parts. The first is a bbc bitesize lesson on finding a percentage of an amount. It's something that we've done in school but it'll be good to remind you all of the formal method.

The second part is a challenge for you linked to ice cream. Remember to try and work through it methodically to make sure you don't miss one out. I'll share the answer with you tomorrow.

As always, stay safe and be kind,

Mr Shield
