P1M & P1W: Week Beginning 21/6/21

Good afternoon,

I hope you’ve all been having a lovely weekend. I can’t believe we are at the last week of the year. It’s been a fantastic year and we are so proud of all of the progress you have made.

As it is our last week of the year, there will be no homework this week. 

Reminders:

  • Please have a good check at home for any books you have not returned and return these as soon as possible. This helps us to make sure they are all ready for next session.
  • We will be sending home some jotters this week. These do not need to be returned.
  • On Friday, we finish at 1pm. Due to the early finish, the only lunch option will be sandwiches (pre-ordered).
  • Read and Munch will be on Thursday this week. Please bring a book and a healthy snack to enjoy in class.

As always, if you have any questions please get in touch.
