Week Beginning 13th December


There will be some maths activities set on My Maths - please let us know if you need a reminder of your login details. There are 6 homeworks set for you to have a go at around multiplication and division, our current topic in class. 



We will be publishing our stories this week - writing them up and illustrating them using the book template below, so that we can enjoy them on Christmas Eve. Or if your computer skills are good maybe you could type up your version adding pictures. If you would like a copy of your story to write up, please email us and we will scan your English book in. Otherwise, you might like to have a go at writing another Christmassy story, similar story to Star in a Jar

Why was everything silent in the house?

Why were the stockings hung by the chimney?
