It was lovely to go to the garden on Wednesday afternoon in the sunshine and enjoy being outside.  In English, we are continuing to read the Greek Myths and we wrote a character description of Perseus today.  In Maths, we have been solving word problems.

Mrs Pace and Mrs Doonan visited the class for a brief circle time to discuss and fully explain the Behaviour Policy ;and to remind all children that unacceptable behaviour  results in consequences.

Please remember to return reply slips for the walks on 9th June and 23r June (I am aware the majority of Year 5 children are going to France on the 9th).
