Hi Biggies,
As usual I  hope you are all well. It was great to hear some of you in the video conference last week.

Please take your time reading this. Go over it with an adult if you can. Listen to the audio version if that helps. Take your time there is a lot to take in.

I would like you to post two or three things to your e-portfolio each week. This will help you build up a record of your learning over time. There are suggestions of things to post below. You can post about anything else too. I’ve really enjoyed reading all the posts so far.

You can contact me by e-mail, I’ll be in Teams every day. You can get Help with Glow
