Mrs Shirley welcomes you to Class 7
If your child has any great news to share, let me know and I will put it on here. I always like to know about medals or certificates for football, dance, swimming, in fact anything at all!
Hopefully, you will find this a helpful page if homework or spellings are misplaced or left at school. I will do my very best to keep it up to date.
We are having a sneaky morning off curriculum this morning. However, we are using our inference skills to create a world for our aliens/monsters/trolls/goblins (children's descriptions). Can you spot the cards that we are using for our inspiration?
