It’s been a short but very busy half-term which we have all thoroughly enjoyed – from the fantastic STEM week where we had exciting visitors to some wonderful writing about the Flower Man and some challenging maths which has including fractions and decimals. To finish the half-term we are looking at 3D shapes and their properties.

In the last half term of the year we will be looking at plants including what they need to grow well and looking closely at their parts. We will also be learning about the development of Market Harborough, to include how and why the town has changed – even in the living memory of the children! We are hoping to have some visitors to talk to the children about development in the town and some of the fascinating history of Market Harborough. We would welcome any information, stories or images you have about the town and how it’s changed as well! In addition, we are hoping to organise a trip into Market Harborough to do a ‘Town Trail’ and learn about the history of the Harborough Theatre. The date is to be confirmed, but we wondered if any parents, grandparents or carers were able to come along to help? If you are interested, please let us know and we will confirm dates as soon as possible.

Please enjoy the holiday and have a good rest! If you could encourage your child to continue to read and practise their times tables and spellings that would be great. Thank you so much for all your help over the year with this, it is really very much appreciated.
