      Well done Ruby. You are right. You do need to start at 0cm … that is a great tip for everyone else.

      Hello Luella,

      Glad you are completing the activities and thank you for sending me photos of it all by email! Maybe you can tell all the other children about where to always begin when using a ruler?

      Miss Shah 🙂

    I learnt that Emmeline Pankherst was born on 14th July 1858. She couldn’t vote for herself and this made her feel unhappy. In the end she got her own way though.

      Thank you for that information, I don’t know much about Emmeline Pankherst so you have taught me something new today! She sounds like a very strong lady who fought for her rights. What an inspiration she is!

      Ruby, are you using the one from your homework book? I have your code to give you but will need to email it privately so no one else can see it. Perhaps you could ask a teacher at school to message me and I can get them to pass it on to you?
