Dear Parents/carers 

We have reached the end of this half term all too quickly!    School re-opens on Monday 24th February, when the classes will start their next projects: Class 4 will be looking at “ID” – a science-based project about our identities; Class 3 will be extending their geography knowledge in “Misty Mountain Sierra”; Class 2 will be looking at famous and infamous historical figures in “Heroes and Villains”; and Class 1 will be exploring fairy tales in “Tell Me a Story”.  I hope that you all have a safe and relaxing half-term break.
