Week commencing 30th Sept 2019

We have also appointed our two representatives for the school council this week!

In English, we have completed publishing our letters from the perspective of a WWII evacuee. These are now on display outside our classroom. Please feel free to come and have a closer look!

We are not sure who Mrs Mac is. She is the lady who warns Tom and James NOT to go down to the old canal! Here is the model text:

Here is our representation of blood and some explanations:
