Monday 11th January

Dear Diary,

Today I had to go and fetch water because we did not have any to cook our super. My stepmother and step sister always make me do chores and they treat me terribly. First, I had to walk through the eerie forest where lots of scary, wild and terrifying animals live. Next, I met an antelope who told me to go home. Then a hyena warned me to hide behind a tree because there was a golden, majestic lion. Finally, I got some cool water from the stream.



LO: To relate arrays for the multiplication table of 2 to doubling.
