Home Learning W/C 5th January 2021

Hello Everyone, 
 
Happy New Year! 
 
I hope you enjoyed your Christmas break and had lots of fun! 
 
For a short while things may be a little bit different but I know you will all try your best and I have planned lots of fun things for you to do. 
 
Below is a time-table of what we will be learning this week. On the time-table I have added timings but these are just a guide to help you plan your day. Underneath the time-table, I have added the resources and a brief explanation of every task for you to complete.  
 
Once you have completed your work, you will then upload your work to me via the VLE (the same way as you upload your homework) so I can give you feedback :). Remember just like our homework you do not have to print off all your work. you can simply write out your answers onto a piece of paper and take a photograph of that! 
 
If you have any problems, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 
I look forward to communicating with you this week. 
 
Stay safe! 
From Miss Corkill
