We look forward to welcoming you at our Class Assembly next Friday 10th February. The children have written down their own ideas for the Assembly and we hope you enjoy sharing their highlights of the year so far. The children have written explanation texts this week and been measuring in Maths. Next week in English we will be doing some grammar and sentence structure revision and continue reading The Railway Children. We enjoyed the walk to Bushey Station and thank you to those parents who accompanied us.
Star of the week: Lucy Gee

The children in Robin class are very creative! We need lots of boxes, plastic containers (not milk cartons), rolls of cardboard for our fantastic creations. The children love to make and invent, last week we had Robots, Planes and many more inventive ideas! If you have any of these we would be greatly appreciative.
