Hi Class 1,

We have come to the final day of our home learning for this week, as it is bank holiday on Friday.  Today (or over the next few days, if you prefer), you should complete your topic and maths tasks, as we will be starting something new next week.  Don't forget to send me your completed settlements projects to:  I have received some great ones already - thank you!

I have also added a range of V E day inspired activities for you to choose from, as your home learning for today.  

Have a lovely bank holiday weekend.

See you next week for another week of home learning.
