As it is children in need today as homework I would like pupils to research facts about this day and how the money raised has helped children around the world. There is also math homework on abacus active learn for them to complete. If your child is unable to complete these tasks please tell them to let me know as I can then give them time in school to complete it. Thank you. Mr Griffin. (18/11/16).
