It was brought to my attention today that there was a mistake on the spelling homework sheet. How embarrassing! However, it offered a good opportunity to talk about making mistakes, how we deal with them and how we can use them to help us to grow. If you do spot any glaring errors in the future then please let me know! Thanks.
This week we have been learning:
Varjak Paw – chapters 6 and 7.
