The Patchwork Path. Our New Text! Vocabulary from the first page Think about the word’s ‘slave’, plantation, ‘freedom, quilt and ‘master’, what do these words mean? Can you find a definition? Look in an online dictionary and write the definition in your exercise book or write them in an email and sent it to me. Now look at this picture. Today our main activity is to think about this picture and write down our thoughts and predictions.

I have set a spelling 2do quiz. Check your answers and repeat the ones you got wrong. When you are sure you have done your best you can hand it in and I will mark it. If I send it back to you please do it again.
