Hello everybody! I hope you all had a good half term break and managed to enjoy a little of the fantastic weather we’ve had over the last week or so. I unfortunately managed to damage the ligaments in my right leg and have been on crutches for the last few weeks but I’m on the mend now.

As you may know, we are all very busy at the moment getting as organised as we can, in preparation for our school to re-open in the coming weeks. Blackburn with Darwen Council have decided on a phased return for three year groups initially: Reception Class (to open 8th June), Year 1 (to open 15th June) and Year 6 (to open 22nd June). Staff are making preparations to ensure your safety on your return.

In the meantime, we shall continue to be sending learning packs home and these should be ready for collection by Thursday of this week. There should still be some tasks that you haven’t completed from the last pack to keep you busy until then. Keep checking our class page on the school website for guidance as to what you are expected to do each day. It’s time to get back to work, so here are your tasks for today.

· Turn to page 4 – here you’ll find some long multiplication practice – multiplying a four digit number by a two digit number. See the example below for a quick refresher on how to do them and then finish the other 15 questions.

‘tore at our faces’ tell you about the wind?
