Weekly Update 8.12.23


Year 5 have been working hard learning the skills to write a newspaper report about a true life adventure that we have been reading about. In maths the children are coming to the end of their learning sequence on fractions and have really impressed us with their resilience and problem-solving skills. The Young Voices songs we will be singing in our Christmas assembly next week are sounding amazing and the children can't wait to perform for you.
