Welcome back Dragons and Wombles. week beginning 20th April 2020

 We hope you all managed to do at least some of the things that you would normally do in a school holiday and are now looking forward to some at home working with some new activities and challenges that you can do together.

It is now the start of the Summer term and to add to the strangeness of life at the moment we are going to start the term finding out about 2 of the coldest places on earth.
