Monday 18th May
Good morning everybody! This week is ‘WILD WEEK!’ It is all about nature, animals, wildlife and the wild world. The reason this is our theme this week, is because Friday 22nd May is International Day for Biological Diversity. Watch this video to find out what that means…
Have a great week!
At the bottom of the page there are two PDF files which tell you about 8 extinct animals. That means their species has died out!

In maths this week, you will be consolidating your understanding of number in various ways with a link to multiplication and division.
