1.  I hope everyone enjoyed the 4 snow days last week and are fully refreshed for this week - we have quite a lot to catch up.  I hope that most, if not all of you were able to access the 'Snow Day' learning that I set up last week.

2.  Parent consultations -  Tuesday and Wednesday this week.  As before, pupils will be asked to attend for the first 5 minutes to present their updated portfolios.

3.  Number Crunch Club - I still have lots of place available - if you have not signed up, please do so.  All comers are welcome. The sessions are helping to supplement (in a fun way) the learning we are doing in class.  If your child has any 'gaps' in their understanding, they should come along.  It finishes at 4.15pm.  With parent consultations taking place this week, the Club will resume next Wednesday.

4.  Tiling Project - Y6 will work with their buddies this Friday to create another set of 30 tiles that will take pride of place in the Hippos toilets.
