The focus of the 'live' lessons this week will be English, and they will be recorded so that you can access the content at a later time during the day if you are unable to attend the scheduled meeting.  As we are taking a register of those of you who attend the lesson, please let us know via the year group email if you have not been able to attend, but have accessed the lesson at a different time.
