Please ensure you are clicking on your correct class's work as you may be doing something a little bit different to the other classes. These PowerPoints will include the information about your live remote sessions with your teacher as well as all the links required to complete your work. Don't forget to send us the work you complete to our class emails. We would love to start sharing your South America work on the website too! 

If you have any problems, let us know when in our daily catch-ups or drop us an email. We will get back to you as soon as possible. 


Stay safe!
