The Duchess of Cambridge to lead assembly on kindness Place2Be’s royal patron HRH The Duchess of Cambridge will lead an online assembly for the Oak National Academy today (Thursday 18 June), during which she will speak about the importance of children's mental wellbeing.The theme of The Duchess’ assembly is ‘spread a little kindness’ The Duchess will say: “Talking to someone, whether it’s a friend, family member, or teacher, is something you can do to make yourself feel that little bit better. And you can also play your part in helping others to feel better too, whether offering a friendly ear, or helping someone in need. Small acts of kindness can go such a long way. But as we help others, we mustn’t forget to nurture ourselves, by taking the time to focus on the things that make us feel happy too.” The link for the assembly will be found here: https://classroom.thenational.academy/assemblies/ Tip for parents home schooling is now available here: https://thomasestleycc.sharepoint.co…

Tommo Reads Chapter 3

Chapter 3 Tommo Reads
Chapter 3 tells us all about how Maxwell found Monster, read by the very captivating Ms Little. Have your opinions on Maxwell changed during this chapter? Why do you think he was allowed to keep him? Have you ever rescued an animal? Let us know your thoughts!

Tommo Reads is LIVE!

TOMMO READS!So many of you have already got involved with Tommo Reads through finding it in the student area. If you want to find them there, you just sign in with RM Unify, click on the tab that says 'Student Area', click 'Documents' then find the 'Tommo Reads' folder. The first couple of videos are also below for your to enjoy. Each chapter is read by a different member of staff, and they are usually uploaded in the evening on a Tuesday and a Thursday. There's nothing better than snuggling up with a hot chocolate and listening to a good story and leaving all your cares behind.
We would love to hear what you think about the story so far! Is Maxwell really a naughty boy? Is he justified in his actions towards Mrs Banks? Why do you think the dog is called Monster? Let Mrs Briggs know your thoughts on hbriggs@thomasestley.org.uk.
