Tuesday 14th  July

Tuesday English

 

Maths:

Please find below the maths tasks for the remainder of this week to see you through to Friday and the start of the Summer Holiday.

I have attached 4 mystery activities for you to solve. Please decide how many you would like to complete together. From previous feedback I have received, I know some children are so keen to solve the mystery that they complete all 5 clues in one day and therefore could complete all 4 mysteries this week. However, you may feel it is better to spread them over two days and complete two of the mysteries or even just do one clue each day and solve one mystery by the end of the week.

Good luck detectives!
