Happy Earth Day! And What's Your Weather Like?

21st April 2018
This newsletter comes out just in time, I hope, to let you see our fabulous new Earth Day activities (for 22nd) and Shakespeare resources and St George's Day playdough mats (for 23rd). 
We've also launched a new (long overdue) topic this week - Weather. We will be adding more activities to the topic over the next few weeks but we've made a good start already.
Our Famous Person of the Week is Anne Frank, and Shelly's Guest Post looks at beginning subtraction with some fun tips and ideas.
