Spring 1 Message from Miss Lawton

Happy New Year!

We sincerely hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! After such a busy and exciting end to the Autumn Term, we are hoping for a slightly quieter half-term where we can focus on lots of interesting topic work, along with lots of BB activities! Our topics this half term are: 'There Was A Monkey', 'Let The Force Be With You', 'Pop Art' and 'Ca Va?'  We are linking up with Westwood Academy children again this half term on Wednesday 7th February, where we are going to Oldham Gallery.  Thank you for your ongoing support!   If you have any concerns, questions or queries in the meantime, please feel free to make an appointment to see me before or after school.
