Information and reminders
Thank you to all parents who attended our trip to the museum, your help was appreciated. The children loved learning about Shanghai and what it looked like in the past.
The author Neil Griffiths was a huge success. I am sure you heard lots about his story telling!
If you are having any issues logging onto CHQ to organise your child’s CCA’s please send Mr. Wallace an email for assistance.
We will change to summer uniform when we return from the April holidays. Please visit the school website or check in your child’s Learning Journal for the appropriate clothing, which can be purchased at our uniform shop.

The children were sad to complete our Time Travellers topic. They had a great time at the Shanghai Municipal History Museum and liked learning about Shanghai and its past traditions and cultures.
After the holidays, the children will begin a new unit called ‘Our World.’ This unit begins with an explosive entry point so make sure you check Class Dojo! This unit will focus on developing the children’s geographical skills and understanding of the world.
