Do also keep practising your maths work; use the Oak Academy lessons for Year 5.
I will be in touch this week about organising another Zoom session for next week.
Enjoy the sunny weather this week,
Thank you to all of you who took part in our Zoom session; it was lovely to see all of your smiling faces!

Thank you to those children who have sent in work- it's great to see what you have been up to.
I hope you have enjoyed the chapters so far! I loved meeting the characters, Tom, Josie, Michael and Ahmet! I found it hard to work out the narrators name? I thought it was lovely how he thought about the feelings of the new boy, Ahmet, and winked at him! Jennie doesn't sound too kind though! And what does seclusion mean? Where do you think that Ahmet goes?
I've attached the quiz and the writing activities- have a go at them and email pictures or documents of your work to me by Friday :)
