What a busy half term!

We have thoroughly enjoyed this half term with your children. The weather is better, so everyone having fun on the field and the children are really enjoying their new topic of Harpenden. This week we have created some beautiful artwork based on the theme of Matisse's 'cut outs'. (Please see below for our creations). The children really concentrated on this very tricky and intricate task.

There will be no spelling or maths homework this week but we have asked the children to interview a  local resident, that has lived here for a while. This homework is due in on the first Monday back and we are looking forward to reading them.

When the children return to school it will be assessment week. If there are any areas of maths that they would like to practice, please use mymaths as an online support.

Have a fantastic half term break
