Happy Easter and congratulations to Johnny-Mac and Daniel on their Baptism last Sunday – I proudly watched this wonderful celebration online, while away on holiday.
The children have returned to school refreshed and keen to learn, which has been great. In English we have been looking at reliable sources online, to gather facts about plastic pollution, to use in our persuasive writing and have also combined our computing skills by creating popplets. We have also focused on our mental maths skills and taken part in an Easter workshop, which the children seemed to really enjoy – thank you to the members of our parish who led some of the carousel activities. Well done to those children who made Easter Gardens – they look amazing!
Our PE days have changed this term to Monday and Wednesday – please ensure children have PE kits, including a change of socks in school. We are focusing on Tennis this half term and are fortunate to have Mr Mills from Potter Bar tennis club leading our Monday lessons.

Our new Topic is Ancient Egyptians and in preparation for next week we would like the children to research 8 interesting facts from reliable sources such as – BBC bitesize, national geographic kids and BBC history.
You could choose to record this information as a poster, a written paragraph or a mind map. A paper copy of this weeks home learning task has been sent home with your child, which they could use to record on.
