We will continue to work hard to get the best improvement out of the children and to make the year as enjoyable as we can. As parents/guardians it would be of great benefit to aid us in this by getting the children to read for 20 minutes each evening and to sign their diaries to say they have done so. We expect the pupils to write into their diaries what book they have read along with what pages and parents/guardians to just initial.
SATs / Easter Home learning:
This year we will be studying a range of different topics. In this term we will be working through WWI!
The sun sets on the battlefield of France and a solitary bugle sounds the Last Post.
Known as ‘the war to end all wars’ the First World War was a conflict that had a devastating effect on millions of people across the world.
What started this global tragedy? What was life like for families on the home front as they waited for news of loved ones who were ‘missing in action’? How did the soldiers endure the terrible conditions in the trenches? How was a fragile peace finally achieved?
We will always remember the fallen.
