Spring 1 Message

I can't believe it, we are already into the spring term! This half term we will be starting to look at the Tudors which will also form the basis of our class assembly on Monday 20th January. We will then be travelling to Antarctica to learn all about Ernest Shackleton and life in Antarctica. After that, we will be completing our Business Challenge before a week looking at French. Here's to a very busy yet fun half term!
