Monday/Tuesday 20th/21st July
Being the last two days of term, the learning will be less structured than previously. We will be posting a variety of activities that you may like to try. There are also some good ones on the Year 5 Home Learning page too. In addition, could I suggest that you use this opportunity to catch up with any of the lessons you've missed over the last term or go back over some areas that you have found tricky. All our lessons can be found on the website.
Complete reading Bitter Chocolate.

Today's lesson asks you to annotate the text. We would recommend that you use Screen Shots to copy the pages you need to work on and paste them onto an MS Word Document. You can then add text boxes and arrows to annotate and add your ideas. If you are working from a system which doesn't allow you to do this, we would recommend that you simply copy out only the sections and samples of text you consider relevant. If working from home, photograph these and send them to Mr Taylor for marking. Email us if you have any questions.
