We hope you had an enjoyable Easter holiday and are looking forwards to Term 5!
This week we are back to school on Wednesday and we will be kicking off the term by finding out about our new Rainforest topic in preparation for our Rainforest Day on Monday 24th April.
We will be finding out what a rainforest is and what lives there as well as deciding what else we want to find out about these amazing places. This will be alongside getting back to grips with our Maths, English and phonics and settling back into school.
We have lots of exciting things to look forwards to this term:
Monday 24th April Rainforest Day - come to school dressed as your favourite rainforest animal (Key Stage 1 only)
Monday 1st May Bank Holiday Monday - no school!
Tuesday 16th May and Wednesday 17th May - 2:30 - 3:30 Parent's Afternoon - come and visit your child's class for the afternoon (details later this term)
Wednesday 24th May May Day
