Well done children for a great end of term. We had a lovely day today watching the pantomime and having our Christmas party.
I hope you enjoy the Christmas break, spending time with your family, playing and getting plenty of rest. However, it is really important that you spend some time doing the following:
- Learn your 4 times tables and corresponding division facts by heart (the aim is to recall the answer to a question within a couple of seconds). If you're fluent already, then make a start learning your 6 times table.
When we come back to school in January, we have a really exciting topic linked to some very exciting stories! During the first couple of days back, you will be doing some art and experimenting with language linked with your favourite beastly story character. Cruella de Vil will lead by example and I'm really looking forward to seeing her when we go and watch 101 Dalmatians with you all. Over the holiday, have a think about who your favourite beastly character is i.e. Professor Snape, the Grand High Witch, Miss Trunchbull... See if you can find some pictures of them, extracts from the book which describes your character and anything else to do with them. Bring it all in on the first day to share with us and you will use it to help with your learning.
Finally, thank you to you and your grown ups for all your kind Christmas messages and gifts.
Mrs Marks and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a very happy 2018!
Lots of love
