End of the first half term

 

We are just finishing the first half term in school and I just wanted to say a big well done to every pupil in class. We had a difficult start but everybody has now settled into routine and there has been some great work produced. 

The children enjoyed learning about volcanoes and earthquakes, forces and positive and negative drawing. They have learnt the fundamental skills in maths and wrote great stories about Sherlock Holmes. The year 6's have also completed their bikeability course and we have competed in two sports events.!

I think we all deserve a good rest over half term before we learn about lots of new topics including Vikings in history and making marble runs in DT. There will be no homework over half term. You can still practice your tables on rockstars and the spelling words are on this page. 

 

Have a great break and see you soon.
