Christmas Holiday Homework

Merry Christmas, girls! You've worked hard this term and deserve a fantastic break!
To keep your mind ticking over, we've set a few homework tasks. This is particuarly important for Year Six, who start 11+ as soon as we come back in the New Year.

The Year Six Holiday Homework is on our password-protected VLE here.

This includes writing and comprehension tasks - and lots of helpful podcasts and videos, too!

The Year Five Holiday Homework - an introduction to 11+ comprehension - is here.

Have a super holiday, girls!

P.S. Don't forget to keep commenting on Cornelia & McKeel's blog posts, girls!
