Last Week of Half-term

Hi all,

Wow! Are we at half-term already? We have been so busy these past few weeks. We have finally cracked fractions and are making some great progress with our writing. We have really focused on our Burnet News Club topic this half-term of independence and at this exact moment are writing some fantastic persuasive speeches.

We are only sending home two parts of homework for this holiday. These are both due in on Tuesday 20th February.


Daily reading –> 4 entries needed in reading records.

After half-term, we are writing a biography of David Attenborough. You need to research him and find out key events in his life. You may want to find out:

  • where and when he was born
  • where he went to school
  • what jobs has he had
  • what are some of his famous TV shows
  • what is he currently doing

This needs to be read for Tuesday so we can start planning our biography. If you need some time in school, please let us know. Miss Fielding is running an additional homework club at lunchtime on Monday 19th to help with this.


We hope you all have a great and restful half-term and see you all on Monday 19th February.
