Welcome back to all of our children and parents. We hope that you have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to the half term ahead. Please remember to make sure you are signed up to Class Dojo to keep up to date with any messages and to see what we have been up to in school.

English

Over the coming weeks, we will be reading and working on a text called, 'Can we save the tiger?'  This amazing book was shortlisted for the 2012 Kate Greenaway medal and gives the reader a close up observation and stunning detail of animals. It certainly brings the animals to life. During this unit, we will produce descriptive, informative and persuasive pieces of writing.
