Class 1 weekly news

Hello everyone!

Just a little message to say how sorry and disappointed I am for missing the end of term with Class 1. It’s definitely not the end of term I had planned. We have had an amazing term together and the children in Class 1 have been a pleasure to teach. Mrs Stevens and Mrs North told me how brilliant they all were in their Christmas nativity and I am so proud of all of their efforts – something else that I was really sad to miss.

Mrs Stevens and Mrs Wills have been amazing in my absence and would love to do some fun Christmassy things next week with the children.

They will be continuing to complete lots of Christmas crafts, on Tuesday there will be a film afternoon and Wednesday will be Class 1’s Christmas party. School uniform will be needed on Wednesday as they are going to Church in the morning but if you would like to put a Christmas jumper in your child’s bag for the party in the afternoon then please do.
