Weekly quizzes on www.diagnosticquestions.com are set on Friday and the deadline is Wednesday.

This is to further support what we are learning in class but to stretch children to think of how and why they know - not just answer the question. 

If your child has any difficulty with logging in or accessing the internet,  they can see me for support in their own time.
