As we approach the end of term we still have a busy week with some extra special events. The Fun Sports Morning for Foundation Stage and Year 1 is scheduled for Tuesday morning from 9.15 - 11.00am weather permitting. All parents are invited to attend if they wish.

Your child's PE kit will be sent home beforehand so please make sure your child wears their PE kit in to school first thing on Tuesday. They can wear this all day, so a change into uniform is not required. They will all need their PE kit on Friday, so please make sure this comes back into school as soon as possible.

Don't forget that on Thursday we have our annual 'Books for Breakfast' event which is used to raise money for new class books. Tickets and further information are available from the main office.

In Maths we will have a week-long investigation in which the children will need to solve clues in order to arrive at a solution on Friday. In English they will be using their literacy skills to describe and assist with their investigations.

We will be using Ipads and atlases to learn about the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world in Geography.
