Welcome to Class 6
We hope you all had a lovely Easter break and that you are ready for our final term in Class 6.
This term, our class topic is Rivers and we will be finding out about the River Wear in Durham, rivers across the UK and rivers around the world.
We have PE on a Wednesday during Term 3a then Thursday during Term 3b so please come to school wearing your full PE kit ready for PE every week. We have lots of other PE events booked in for the Summer Term and we'll also be doing Forest School during term 3b - we'll post the dates on Dojo each week.
Please remember to bring your water bottle into school every day. Please also remember that we must only bring essential items into school at the moment.
As always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
Miss Luke, Mrs Dart and Mrs Roddam
