Around the World In 80 Days.

 

Welcome back, we are all set to begin our new topic, around the world in 80 days. We began our journey by exploring the UK. In English we began by writing postcards back home and finding our sidekick to accompany us on our journey. We will be moving on to writing the opening of our own around the world story.

In Maths we have been working hard on our number knowledge, primarily focusing on place value.
