1.  A big well done to all the Dragon's Den Y6 'businesses' - they raised nearly £600 which is a huge amount.   It was lovely to see everyone in action on the day and working so hard to raise as much money as possible. 

2.  Gingerbread houses:  You will have seen that the letter I sent out in the week.  To make the project happen, we always need volunteers -  thank you for those that have agreed to do so, but we still need more.  Tuesday afternoon is now not possible because of the KS1 Dress rehearsal, so as many people as Tuesday morning and Wednesday would be great. 

3.  Christmas Church Service - Wednesday 20th December at 2pm.  Year 6 will be leading the service as usual - please do come along if you can. 

Maths

We will be consolidated work done so far this term and then be completing end of term assessments in Arithmetic, Problem Solving and Reasoning.

Online Safety

We will be looking at 'Talking Safely online' and creating posters to be displayed around school.
