Each week there will be new added reading tasks set on Purple Mash. These reading tasks will also be added here on the website and can be accessed below. There will be three chapters of a book and a task set weekly. The pdf's below do not need to be printed nor does the task, you can simply read from a pc or tablet and answer the questions in your green exercise book.
YouTube 'P.E with Joe' at 9am every morning for a 30 minute PE lesson taken by Joe Wicks. They are all saved on there so you can access them throughout the day.
