World Book Day

 

We are celebrating World Book Day on Friday 22nd March. Our Class novel ‘Once’ by Morris Gleitzman has inspired many of our year 6 children to read and because of this the Year 6 teachers are planning to dress as characters from the story. We would love it if some or all of the children were to join in!

This topic requires mature teamwork skills and from past experience, regardless of product , the groups who work very well together are the most successful.

Welcome to Mrs Hunt and Mrs Charles' Class!

 

Happy new year!

 

Wow, we are really powering through year 6.  Last term's achievements showed us how wonderful our class are.  We have very high hopes for the next term where we will be looking for the children to start taking serious responsibility for their own progress.  We will continue to provide great opportunities to broaden their experiences and provide the platform for them to achieve to their highest potential.

 

We were extremely happy to see such brilliant attendance last term as this has a direct link to achievement.  Let's continue our winning streak with the weekly attendance awards!

 

Things to look forward to this term:

Swimming

Eisteddfod

Enterprise
