What an action packed week we've had
Monday was sports day for the whole school, the children had fun participating in various activities around the school!
Transition day was on Wednesday and we welcomed the current Year 2s to Class 3 in preparation for September. We hope that the children had fun getting to know us and the classmates they will be joining, we are very excited to be welcoming them to our class. We will also miss our current Year 4s who will be moving on to pastures new with Mr Allton in Class 4 :(
Thursday was a fun filled ICT day, Mrs Entwistle shared her knowledge of Geocaching and children were able to get to grips with the Garmins, inputting coordinates to find objects placed around the school field!
Enjoy your weekend folks and see you Monday for our final full week of the school year! If you haven't order tickets yet for the Year 6 leavers performance please see Mrs Walsh in the office!

Despite only having 4 days this week we've managed lots in Class 3!
We started the week looking at a new book, How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth.
The children will be using this resource to think about writing instructions, using imperative verbs and prepositions.
They enjoyed having a practice run with something on a smaller scale!
