I take the time to look at all of your pictures and will reply! Wednesday's blog will be Topic based. Friday's blog will share some of the work you have completed over the week and your homework. I will also be calling you on Wednesday/ Thursday to check you are accessing and completing the work on the blog (I will try my best to call you at the same time I have done this week). As I am working from home, I will be calling you from a withheld number. Y5, I hope you have a great weekend, make sure you rest, and I look forward to speaking to you all on Friday.
