Good morning everyone!
If the tasks are taking a lot longer than expected, please don't feel as though you have to complete everything! Make sure you have breaks and, if it is going past 3pm, leave it there for the day. Children work at different speeds - some children may fly through the work and others may take longer. Please work at your own pace and finish when you have done 30-40minutes on a task.
If the work doesn't have answers provided by a website or book, I will upload a document at lunchtime with the answers so the children can mark their own.
If the children complete any IT based tasks, please feel free to e-mail them across to me:
Please find the home learning document and music resources in the 'Home Learning Document' tab of the class page. The 'useful web links' tab also has many of the different websites that you can copy and paste.
THE BOOK CHALLENGE:
These are books recently classified as classics. Your challenge is to see how many you can read this year. Anyone who manages to read them all will get a £10 voucher at the end of the year from me! We might even extend this to all finishers! You'll be able to find some of the books in school and they will definitely be at your local library or even at home.

After you have read each book, write a short book review giving a summary of the story and your favourite thing about the book. This will help recommend some of the books to other children in the class.
