Tuesday 2nd February  

Good morning Sycamore class. 

Here are the activities I would like you to complete today.

I suggest trying to do the English and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Please save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail photos of your work to me each day if you want.


1) English

Today you will be practising writing a range of sentences that you could use in the build-up of Man on the Moon. Make sure you keep this work safe, as you can use these sentences when you come to write the actual build-up later in the week.


Here is the link to your lesson:
