Please make sure you remember:

Your PE kit
A packed lunch
Lots of water
Sun cream
Sun hat

We will be walking to and from the cricket club so you will need comfortable shoes. You might also want to pack a waterproof jacket in case it rains.

If any parents or carers would like to come with us (or meet us there) to watch or help with scoring, we would love to see you!

As a part of our Russia topic, we have been admiring some Russian nesting dolls. We have lots of beautiful dolls in our classroom and this week we decided to make some of our own. Here are some photos of us making our dolls and some lovely examples of finished sets.

Firebird Puppets

This week we have finished our Firebird topic. I am sure you will agree, these firebird puppets are a stunning way to complete our unit of work. Well done everybody!
