Welcome to Green Class

Dear Parents, A very warm Happy New Year to you all, I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break. Firstly, Mrs Chadwick and I would like to thank you all for the very generous gifts which we have received.

A few dates for your diary. Class photographs are on the 23rd January. On Thursday 13th February it is Green Class assembly where you will be more than welcome to come and find out about some of things we have learnt in Green Class.

I love all the extra work the children have been doing at home and bringing it in to school, please keep it up. Feel free to continue emailing me your PowerPoints. We have dedicated two display areas to show off the amazing work. Your child is welcome to bring in any work, books, artifacts related to any of the areas we are studying this term and show them to the class. To continue to really help your child to succeed in KS2, please could you read regularly with your child at home and write it in their homework diary. If you have any questions or want help, you’ll be more than welcome to pop in for a chat.
