Weekly Update 

This week Year 5 have visited the library and both classes showed wonderful manners whilst visiting our local community. The children enjoyed looking for books that struck their interest, and enjoyed taking a few moments to sit and read.  In English, the children have been writing an informal letter to a character in the book we are reading, (Matchbox Diaries).  They have took on the role of the struggling family from the 1900's that are currently in a poverty stricken Italy, but whose father has travelled to America to earn more money for them all. Next week we are looking forward to taking the whole of Year 5 swimming on Monday afternoon.
