Good morning everyone,
I hope you have had a wonderful and restful weekend ready for another full week of home learning!
I would like to just remind you to continue sending through all your amazing learning you are doing; I love seeing how hard you are all working. In addition, we will be having another Zoom this week at 2pm for the children. This will be on Wednesday 20th January. This is to check in with the children and then to play a fun game together.
Also, remember to keep yourself active throughout the day and take some well-deserved brain breaks!
See below for the tasks I would like your child to complete today:

NB: on Friday, your child will be tested on their spelling through a test set up on Purple Mash.
Task One – practice spelling your list by using the look, say, cover, write, check method (this could be done on paper at home).

Any questions that you come across you could write down some answers or discuss them with someone at home. The Knowledge Organiser is attached below; make sure that you read it every lesson as this is all the things you are going to learn about.
Main Task – complete the blank map of Greece by filling in the names of the city-states. This has been set as a 2do on Purple Mash.
I hope you have a wonderful day and are keeping safe.
