Home Learning for the week: 
Welcome back to Summer Term 2, Week 2 of home learning!  I hope you've all had a lovely weekend.  I'm writing this on Friday so fingers crossed the weather cheers up a bit!
This week we start our work on 'The Ice Monster' in earnest.  We will be researching woolly mammoths and finding out about Dr Barnardo and the charity work he stared in Victorian times.  It should be interesting!
Take care.
