This week is a very exciting week in Mulberry class as we lead up to Christmas. We will be taking part in lots of fun Christmas-themed activities, (card and calendar making, Christmas maths code breakers etc.) as well as polishing off our performance for our church service on Thursday.
Important information for the week ahead:
Wednesday pm - Year 3 and 4 children will be at the village hall performing their Christmas service.
Thursday am - Mulberry will lead the Christmas church service at St. Mary's (10am start).
Thursday pm - Mulberry class will have their Christmas party. Children should come to school in their uniform but may bring a named bag of party clothes to change in to in the afternoon. They may also bring a snack to eat during the party.
Friday - Children may bring in a toy/ game to play with their friends. Please do not send in any electronic devices (iPads/ Nintendo Switch etc). Children will be expected to look after any items they bring in so please do not send in any precious or valuable toys.
There will be no homework set this week but children can still practise their times tables and the year 3/4 spelling words.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support this term and wish you and your families a happy, healthy and peaceful Christmas break.
