Year 6 Weekly Update – 18/11/22

Dear parents/carers,

We have had another great week this half-term in Year 6. We started ‘friendship week’ with ‘odd socks day’ and discussed and celebrated our differences and we will continue our learning on this next week. We had an excellent trip to Kidzania on Friday and we would like to thank all of the parents that helped us on our trip, the children had a brilliant time! Song lyrics for the Year 5/6 Christmas Concert at St Gregory’s have been sent home, please support your child in ensuring they learn all of their classes song lyrics off by heart.
