Welcome to your final year of primary school and what an exciting year we have in store! You will need:
A pinch of 'the ability to laugh at yourself'
Handfuls of responsibility
Spades of confidence
Bucket loads of aspiration
A lorry load of perseverance
A boat load of laughter
This year you will achieve things both in and out of the classroom that you never thought were possible...you just have to give it your all and make every day count!
Our star pupil this week as voted for by the class is Gemma! She was chosen for showing excellent progress in her writing!

What have we been learning this week?
We had a great afternoon learning about Poland today. Luke’s mum came in and taught us some Polish and shared some information about the country and their traditions. We liked the sound of doughnut day best! We located the country on a map, listened to the national anthem and looked at a range of photos. To finish off the afternoon, we did some traditional Polish folk art (Wycinanki).
Visit to Bilsthorpe Heritage Museum
We visited the Heritage Museum in order to gather ideas for how to set out our own museum at the end of the topic.
