Welcome to the last and final week of school.

My hope for this week was to concentrate on the children's transition to their new year group- something we would be focusing on in class.

There are the usual learning packs here that you will be familiar with-


Year One- you have a special French week home learning pack this week, for something a little special!-

Transition materials-

Have lots of discussions about moving to their new year groups.
