I've set a 2do task on Purple Mash linked to our last Science Topic 'Electricity' so I can see how much you have remembered!
I've also set a task linking to our Greek topic where you can compare Ancient Greece with Modern Greece.
I've also set a SPAG game where you can think about the difference between past and present tense!

Reading: Please can you and your child read as much as possible!

*Opening statement – Often quite general and then followed by further information it introduces the non chronological report. It is the chance to make it clear what you are writing about to attract the readers interest.

*Paragraphs – Structure information so it is easy to ready and gather information.
