I want to start today by tackling something which you may be aware of as it is very much in the news at the moment. You might have heard your adults talking about it or have seen something about it on TV. What we are going to be thinking about and learning about today is the Black Lives Matter movement and the problem of racism.
Adults there is a lot of information in this section and obviously this is not an easy-going subject area so you may want to do parts, take a break, do a different section of the blog and then come back to this section later. As always it is up to you.

Daily tasks reminder…however there’s a lot going on today so don’t worry if you don’t get to your daily tasks. Remember just do what you can manage.
…and if you need an extra challenge then the new spellings didn’t go up on Sumdog this week due to Sumdog being very naughty but there were supposed to be numbers 11-20.
Here are numbers 0-10 to remind you:
Now here are the new spellings for 11-20:
Oh and remember to access your music lesson as well:
The link to one of the stories on yesterday’s blog stopped working, I did replace it later on but you may not have had the chance to see that story so here it is again:
It has been great to see some of you sharing your thoughts and ideas this week and one Platypus has really got involved with sending his work in which has been super to see! Maybe next week I could see some more and then we could all see some more next Friday…

Thinking of you,
Miss Linsley…and Mr Fielder 🙂
