Year 5

Update for Week beginning :19 .6.17

This week’s glorious sunshine  is a welcome sight. The children are being encouraged to take off jumpers and to keep drinking throughout the day! It would be great if all the children; come to school wearing sun protection, have a water bottle and maybe  a hat for playtime.  This weeks highlight, is a talk this afternoon, with Peter Thompson, who ran 44 marathons in 44 days. He is going to talk to the children about how he remain determined to achieve his goal, day after day. The children are really looking forward to his talk and we hope it encourages them to have the same determination as Peter.
