Good morning Goldfinch. I hope that you all had a good weekend. I have uploaded work for the entire week. I am hoping that this will make it easier for you to plan ahead and have things ready. Remember it's entirely up to you how much you choose to do. Try to do a bit of maths, reading and writing each day. Cooking, playing games and exercising are all really important and help to develop many different skills, so please continue to do these together. If you have any photo's then please send them to me. firstname.lastname@example.org
