February Half Term
There will be no homework set over half term.
There have been a lot of illness in year 6 over this half term and we want you all well and ready to learn.
Spend time outside, with your family and relaxing. You've all worked extremely hard.
If you are desperate to keep learning - remember you could always do some work in your revisions books if you have a few spare minutes.
Enjoy your half term!
Mrs Baker and Mr Jackson.
