This afternoon we will be doing a geography lesson all about England. We will be creating a fact file using lots of information we are collecting about England. I have uploaded my geography PowerPoint for you to look through and find some facts. If you find them all quickly, could you find some of your own facts to add to the fact file?

We will also be completing our times tables test and spelling test today. Ask an adult or sibling to test you or see if you can test yourself. Good luck and don’t forget to let me know your results!

As always, if you are looking for more to do, there is plenty on Spelling Shed and Maths Shed you can have a go at. Why not practise our new spellings and maths assignments? They will be available to view from lunchtime.

In English we are starting to write a new piece of writing, a story from the perspective of a dog. I have gathered some pictures for you to have a look at.
