This week the children have enjoyed their English work based on the Christmas story and have produced some lovely writing! In Maths we have looked again at 2D and 3D shapes and have thought about their properties. Next week P.E will be on Tuesday and Friday rather than Thursday and Friday. Please send them to school in P.E kit on these days. Thank you!

Next week will have a Science focus and we will be carrying out different Science investigations throughout the week. On Wednesday the children may get a little messy, Therefore please send them to school wearing an old t-shirt or jumper.

On Wednesday it is Christmas lunch day. In the afternoon we will be watching an online pantomime.

 

Rather than have a party this year due to current restrictions, we will have a Christmas Movie afternoon next Friday. School will provide a glass of squash and a biscuit.  As it is P.E on Friday, please send your child to school in PEclothes with a Christmas jumper ot T- shirt.

 

Many thanks for your continued support. Have a lovely weekend.
