If your child is looking for some extra challenges this summer holiday, have a look below at some of the links and activities. You can try them all or one or two that you like the look of! They are just resources I have found that I thought I'd share. I will add more if I find them but won't be updating weekly from now on. Don't forget to check the class pages on the menu too!
If you need any further support, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Parents can also contact me on Twitter @redhillprimary1.
