Good morning. I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend. I hope that you are finding a routine that works for your when completing your home learning.

Complete the reading comprehension on The Great Pyramid. Remember to read the text twice; making a note of any words, you are unsure of. Can you have a guess at what the words mean in the given context and then use a dictionary or go online to find their meaning. Have a go at answering as many of the questions as you can. The first section are retrieval questions, remember to skim and scam the text, looking for key words. After the retrieval questions, have a go at the other VIPERS questions.

Have a good day.
