Summer term

Well done Laurel class - you travelled by car, train, bus, underground and London Eye pod in one day ! You walked over 17,000 steps on one of the hottest days of the year and kept smiling ! You saw the sights and were a pleasure to take - thank you.

Welcome back to your last term at primary school ! Where has this year gone?

Our focus for the next two weeks will be on planning, writing and editing a recount of our London adventure. This will be followed by writing your own short story, based on the short animated film The Light House.
