It was so lovely to speak to you and your parents last week. We were so impressed with all the learning you are doing at home - keep up the good work!
Remember to update your blogs with what you have been up to - it's a great way to keep in touch with your classmates.
We look forward to reading your posts!
Have a lovely week.

Find out about the little known river dolphin. Compare river and marine dolphins, describing the differences in their physical characteristics, feeding, habitats and life cycles. Identify human factors that endanger the river dolphin species.
You need to now create a fact file on the river or marine dolphin.
There are some links you can use to help you find the information.
Design and Technology
WALT: Materials for a specific task must be selected on the basis of their properties. These include physical properties as well as availability and cost.
Now that you understand more about bridges. You need to make one!
Use construction kits or found items, such as newspaper, boxes, tape, string, wooden planks and logs, to create a bridge that crosses a river. Use your research and planning from last week to help you.
As a challenge, once you have built it, try to place something in the middle to see if it holds the weight. Take some pictures and show us, it would be great to see the bridges you've made.
