Monday 23rd March
I hope you have all enjoyed a lovely weekend and celebrated Mother's day with your family. I have uploaded some spellings for this week onto purple mash, and also made a separate blog on purple mash for you all to share any work you have been doing. So far, all of your work that has been shared and handed in looks brilliant! Remember to leave me a comment when you hand it in to let me know how you found it or ask me any questions.
Another activity you may like to try is creating a rainbow using different pencil and drawing techniques, like the photo below.
Don't forget to write something in your diary to let me know what you have been up to for when we come back.
