Just a quick not to say that the children have worked very hard this half term and I hope they all enjoyed the last week, in which we made Dream Catchers, which were amazing, and watched War Horse which was very emotional and really rounded off our studies in World War 1.
I hope you all have a restful holiday and enjoy the `Family` activities of Bread Making and the Oswestry War Walk. You might see me around as I am planning to do the walk too and take my own photos of the sites featured on it - I look forward to reading the emails and seeing all your photos too.
Ms Ryan and I wish you all a very happy and restful holiday.

Weekend Cheeky Challenges
St Therese's class, with some pupils at home who joined us, had a teams meeting with Mr Kemble from the Marches this morning. It was both interesting and informative. Mr Kemble sign posted us to the Marches Y6 into 7 Transition page, a link to which I have included here: http://marchesschool.co.uk/starthere/
The children this morning, had a chance to go on the page and felt that it was: `reassuring`, `interesting`, `the videos were nice because we could figure out what lessons we would be doing`, `the videos were informative about how they would teach the lessons` and `interesting to see the different classrooms`.
It is well worth a few minutes of your time to look at, as Mr Kemble said that there were lots of activities to do that would support the children's transition.
