This afternoon we are going to look at a very famous family tree… The Royal Family!
How does the monarchy work? Why is Queen Elizabeth II the queen now? Who came before her? Who came before them? And who will be our next King or Queen? Let’s find out!
Have a look at the image of the Royal Family tree below. That shows you’re the past 4 kings/queens. Can you find out who came before them?
Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record. You can now also go on: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html to do your online reading and quizzes too! We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So go on, let’s get reading!
Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell all of the Year 2, then do the Year 3/4, if you can already spell all of those, then do the Year 5/6. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
