 CLASS 1

BRING-YOUR-BIKE-TO-SCHOOL DAY

In their science lessons, children in Class 1 will be exploring how we make bikes move and will be writing about this in their Literacy lessons. In order to do this we would like each child to bring in a bike (preferably) or a scooter on Tuesday 25 February.  If you prefer, you may bring the bike into school on Monday 24th (first day back after half-term) or, alternatively, at the end of the day, up to 5.00 pm.  We will keep the bikes in school if you cannot collect them immediately after school on Tuesday.

SPELLING CHALLENGES

These will be held on Friday 01 March.

STUDENT TEACHER

We welcome student teacher, Lucy Rayner from Worcester University, who will be working in Class 1 for five weeks after half term.  We hope Lucy enjoys her time with us.
