Hello from myself and the KMRC team! Is it still January?! I don't know about you but we are finding it that little bit harder not being able to go anywhere when the weather isn't so bright and warm. Must keep smiling though! I hope you are finding something to keep you smiling - maybe there is something below that can help?!

Things You Didn't Know You Didn't Know (or maybe you did?!)
I have lost count with how many times I have asked the children to stop yawning when on the virtual lessons with their teachers! But, did you know... yawning cools the brain! It seems sleep deprivation increases our brain temperature (?!) which could be a factor in why we yawn more when we are tired!
I got sent in two jokes this week from newsletter subscribers - thank you Mr Adams and Mr Pollard! Here is James'... What has 4 wheels and eats lego? A vacuum cleaner! Well it does in this house if it is left lying around... No pain can compare to stepping on a piece of lego!
