Parsley Mimblewood Saves the World!
We seem to have been at home now for quite a long time and I don't know about you but I think I'm starting to get 'Cabin Fever'! This week's English is based on a book called 'How to NOT go to school'. This brilliant story was originally written by a teacher to help his class during the school closures. It has now been published online for all of us to read! It gives some great advice about how to cope at home without going too crazy!
