Home Learning W/C 18.5.20

If anyone is struggling with a routine or organisation of the day/week here is a possible option that I have put together. This can be edited. I post lots of ideas and examples on this weekly post. Please don’t feel like you have to do it all. Keep it varied so the children stay interested and happy 🙂
