Good Morning  Super, Smart, Sleek, Sparkly, Scary, Sensible (Really?), Sprightly, Saucy,  Stupendous, Squirts,

I hope you all had a great weekend and that the sunshine brightened you up. It’s always nice to see the sun shining at the end of winter.

It was also great to see so many of you online last week for our practise runs for the coming week.

In the learning below you will see that maths and English lessons will be online this week for everyone. The times are in the suggested timetable. The lessons are recorded so if you are unable to access the lesson at the time it goes out live you can do it later if that is more convenient.

Here is a link to a Teams Guide for Parents for anyone still experiencing difficulties logging in. I hope this helps:   Teams-Guide-for-Parents Greyfriars Academy
