Hello boys, 

How are you all doing ? I hope you’re all doing well, and enjoying the summer weather. 
The work for this week and next is reading with comprehension questions, and some worksheets to help with hard spellings. 
Its the last month of school for you all this term! 
You can pick out the books you like to read and discuss them with Mam, I’m putting up a selection of different types of books so that you can choose the ones you like best. There are three levels too, so you can pick the one that suits you.
 As always, if there is anything I can send on, or if you have any questions, please let me know on my school email address. Its no problem at all.
Take care 
Mrs McGovern
