Weekly Highlights and Homework 11.9.20

 Mrs Webley's Weekly Highlights

One full week completed... I am so proud of the work children have produced this week, especially in English. We have learned how to enhance our descriptive writing using metaphors and similes- the standard of work has been very high indeed. Year 5 listened carefully and it shows in their own writing. A huge well done!  

Please note, all homework is to be completed in homework books. You do not need to print anything in order for you to complete any task. Your child has been told which group they are in for homework. It is written in their homework book in case they can not remember.
