We made it to Friday :)
Well done for all the amazing work you have completed this week. We have been so impressed with the effort you have put in and the resilience you have had with your work, even when you felt tired!
Even though today is Friday, there is still lots of fantastic and fun things to do! Don't forget to carry out your Science investigation and let us know what conclusions and results you uncover whilst you're doing it.
