Half Term

 

Over the half term break, we would love our students to get some excellent rest, find a book to delve into, and find somewhere new to explore.

We strongly encourage our students to continue to read each day, practice their times tables (Times Tables Rock Stars is a great place to start for this!), and get a bit of fresh air every day. In addition to this, we'd like to encourage our students to create a family census. This does not need to be turned in when we return on the 2nd, but certainly can be if anyone wishes to.
