Don't forget to make your hat this week for our special party zoom call on Friday!
This week you will be thinking about all of the countries and continents we have covered in our topic - and perhaps doing your own research into other places too! The focus of this week's literacy and geography lessons is about planning your own 'round the world' trip!
