Hi Mrs Lambe. Are we suppose to do those booklets u gave us before it was lockdown Hi Emma, We will be letting you know which pages to do in those books next week. :-)

Gennelle(about a month ago)

Hi Mrs lambe I cant print my work so i have to use my dads. Hi Gennelle, That is fine. you can always just write the answers into your yellow book rather than printing out the whole sheet. Just remember to give the work a clear title so that i can match it up when I see the pictures or when you come back to school.
