Good morning everyonesmiley


Thank you to those of you who sent me their amazing parabolic curves - I was hugely impressed! It's Wednesday already chaps and chapettes - time has gone so quickly.  I hope to see lots of you for our morning Zoom as well as our afternoon Zoom today.

Memories of St Richard's

These are the notes we made together after talking about our favourite memories of time at St Richard's. Please have a look at them, see whether they jog your memory about what you write - and then have a go at writing and recording your paragraph. Well done Phoebe who sent me hers last night - everyone else, get busy on them if you can!

Art activity idea: Geometric art using circles.

Watch the video (ignore the advert in the middle) and see whether you can create some more amazing geometric art. All you need is paper, colouring pencils and something round. Good luck!

Have a look at the suspects and the clues, and see if you can work out who the culprit is and where the jewels are hidden.
