Friday 30th October, 2020.

What a busy week we have had! Well done to Odafe as our Pupil of the Week!

Well done to our Playground Star: Alisha! 🙂

This term we are reading:

It’s never too early for Christmas! We have loved beginning this novel in class and have been creating some landscapes and pictures about the novel. We have been using adjectives to describe our pictures.

This term we are learning Makaton and have began to learn ‘How Far I’ll Go’ from Moana in Makaton! We are learning about what Makaton is, who uses it and why it is important!

House Points update to come next Friday!

Have a lovely weekend.
