Chestnut Class topics Summer 2024


Homework set: 17.5.24

Hand in date: 24.5.24


Our homework this week is a reading comprehension about Jane Goodall, who we have been learning about in Science. The reading comprehension was sent home in homework folders (or plastic wallets if your folder was missing) on Friday. There are a variety of questions to answer in the pack - some on the answer sheet, and I have provided lined paper for the additional answers.


The homework should take approximately 30 minutes. There is no need to answer all the questions.


Hand in date for the homework is Friday 24th May. Please hand it in in your homework folder.
