Reading Passports have been given out.  When your child reads at home, they will need to colour half the circle in the passport in order to reach the next Country. Please remember to sign or write your name in their reading record book in case they lose their passport so no miles are lost.  

There are some exciting Art projects coming up too.  Your child will be exploring weaving and practicing observational drawing.

Last week, we completed our Art paintings inspired by the work of Nerys Levy.  Children painted a background of different shades of blue then layered white shapes to create an Antarctic landscape.

Don’t forget Mother’s Day Assembly on Friday at 9.00.  We look forward to seeing you there.
