Happy Tuesday Year 5!

All of your work for today has been set for you on Google Classroom for you today.

You have a task to complete for Spellings, Reading, Maths, English and History. There is also a link to listen to an extract of a book read by its author at the end of your school day!

We have also set these tasks on Purple Mash, just in case you have difficulties in accessing Google Classroom.

Stay safe.
