Good Morning everyone, welcome to our final week of online learning. I am so excited that soon we will all be back in the classroom. 
 
The week on Thursday it is World Book Day. If we were in school we would normally have been dressing up. If you would like to you can think of a character from a book and come dressed as that character on Thursdays live session. Check out the world book day website for other things that you can do this week to make world book day awesome.

Look below for today's activities. Remember that the timings are just a guide. The Maths and English tasks are the priority, History this term is also rather key. If you find you need to have a break at some point in the week please don't feel under pressure to complete everything. Also when we are in school we don't always get everything finished so please don't feel that you always need to complete everything.
