Good Morning Nile Class!

Happy Chinese New Year!

We really enjoyed guessing your animal clues yesterday and it was great to see so many of you!

Today is our last day of term! You have worked very hard this term and it has been lovely to see lots of your work. You all deserve a rest over the holidays (grown-ups as well as children!).  

There is just one more day of learning - I have included some fun activities that you can do over the half-term if you would like too.

Mrs Churchill has uploaded an end-of-term assembly to the school website for you to watch and enjoy.

Have a great half-term week,

Mrs Wylde

Good Morning Nile Class
