Well done children on an excellent Spring term and congratulations on your fantastic Ancient Egyptian homework! I was so impressed with the detail and hard work you put into it.


Our new History topic after the holidays will be 'What Impact did Henry VIII have?' If you have some spare time, I would like you to research Henry VIII and create a poster with 8 facts you have found out about him. Please bring it in with you when we return after Easter on Tuesday 19th April. Also children, remember your 'Doodle' homework if you can fit it in.


Best wishes all, and again, Happy Easter!
