Hello Hawthorn and Sycamore,
We hope you had a wonderful long weekend with your family celebrating VE day. Are you ready for another week of learning?
This week there are 5 maths and English lessons to complete. Try to complete one a day – we know this isn’t possible for everyone – so aim for at least 3. Furthermore, it is best to follow the lessons in order, so don’t worry if you are not on the week set on the blog.
This week we’ve also included SPaG, science, Spanish and music.
