Hi Horse Chestnuts. Another busy week full of fantastic work and great ideas. Here is this weeks homework. If you can not access a computer for Bug Club, let me know and I will organise a time when you can go into the IT Room.

Homework due back on Wednesday 1st September
Maths: We have continued to look at place value and what happens to digits when we add and subtract. Please complete the activities on the sheet.

English: I have loved reading your stories this week and have been really impressed by the language and structure you have used. For homework please design a front cover and title for your story. I have given you a plain sheet of paper and a plastic wallet so it can be returned to school without getting creased or dirty as I would love to display some in the classroom. Tell your family all about your story.

Spellings this week look at contractions and how we use apostrophes.
