Hello everyone

Hope you all had a pleasant half term. Springtime is well and truly here and we are in our final BIG TERM!

Where is that time going? 

Thank you to all those parents who came to see me at parents evening, it is always nice to catch up and meet those of you I haven't so far. If anyone didn't get the chance, feel free to contact me and we can arrange something for a day after school.

We have had a student teacher, Miss Scally, at various points over the last two terms as part of her training. She will be with us again over the coming term as she completes her placement. 

The learning to take place this term can be found below, including spellings and any homework. Please feel free to get in touch anytime.
