Miss Ashford is your teacher.
Mr Williams will be helping out in class too.
Here is some of the fantastic work you have sent me this week.
As soon as their delivery of building materials had arrived, the team set off to work. It looked like the clouds in the distance were beginning to spit rain down at the sleeping countryside, so they knew they must work quickly and effectively. The team were confident however: this was not their first giant Lego structure…
Discuss the picture with your family.
Who are the team that are building the Lego structure?
What is it you think they are building?
Why do the team of builders need to work quickly?
How long do you think it will take them to finish?

Which of the builders do you think is in charge?
Where are their parents?
Can you draw a picture of what the house might look like when it’s finished?
