New This Week ...

8th June 2018
This week we've been looking at some of the world's greatest ever footballers, ready for the 
World Cup. If you haven't explored our World Cup and Soccer pages yet, now is the time!
We've also dipped our toes into the ocean for World Ocean's Day, looked at Fact Families, perked up our Summer Colouring Pages, and added a big new section on Extreme Weather. 
Sarah and Sam have been busy building instruments to measure the weather, Sarah B and her kids have been getting ready for the World Cup with some map and flag activities, and Rita and her girls have made some amazing playdough creations using our playdough mats. It's all below...
