I have to start with…WOW! The work you are sending me is superb. Please keep it coming in. I will follow that up with a heartfelt THANK YOU for the amazing efforts of parents who are making all the learning possible. Here we are then – Term 5, Week 3…Enjoy!
In our Great Fire of London Topic Work, we will be considering Samuel Pepys’ contribution to our understanding of historical events. We will look at some biographical details of his life, what he is famous for and how historians have used his diary. Children might like to have a go at their own portrait of this famous historical person. I will suggest a few activities throughout the week. They do not all have to be completed on the day set, please dip into these as you think appropriate for your child.
SPAG I have allocated more grammar exercises on Active Learn including:
