Well, spring has finally arrived and alongside the increase in temperatures we warmly welcome all of year 6 back to school after what we hope has been an enjoyable Easter break- Miss Thomas hopes that you are all raring to go and have been following her rule of one chocolate egg= one mile!

On a more serious note, there are some very busy weeks ahead of us now as we enter the final term of this year. As well as the opportunity to prove your cycling skills during the cycling proficiency week there will be time to share your more creative talents in this year's Eisteddfod, learn some basic first aid skills and show your adventurous side when away in Surrey at PGL- more information on this will follow later. Oh, and there are also some tests thrown in for good measure!

We hope that this quick resume of what lies ahead will encourage the children to work hard and think ahead to all the exciting things planned. As we are working towards the SATs tests in May we will not be sending home a topic plan this half term. We will launch our new topic once the half term break is over.

As we return to school, Mrs Renier has arrived safely in Africa and has spent her first day travelling out to one of the villages where she is to teach cricket. Before we lost wifi contact she had sampled some interesting foods and seen her first straw huts! When she returns to a more developed area we look forward to an update!
