Happy Friday 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 some fun activities that don’t involve looking at a screen!

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

Stay safe.
