Well done to Class 4 on their Class Assembly
We all enjoyed Class 4’s assembly so much: Mayan tiles and football, Salsa Dancing, fun grammar, tricky Maths problem solving, news of the next Messiah, periscopes to spot the Spectacled Bear of the Amazon and convincing letters of complaint. We were very impressed with your camera filming and presentation of ‘Class 4’s Strictly Come Dancing’. Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to support.
Our Author visit
We all enjoyed meeting the author Antony Wootten who inspired us to read and write as he shared his own experiences of being an author. His books can be purchased directly from his website: www.antonywootten.co.uk
