School finishes on Thursday 13th February this week. Children should return on Thursday 20th February. Enjoy your long weekend
Please note that this week is a 4-day week so homework should be done for Thursday instead of Friday. There is not much for you this week as I would like you to focus on getting your personal projects done over the next couple of weeks and practise your presentations before the due date – 28th February. Everyone should be well on the way to sorting their projects and organising them but please make sure you are checking the success criteria to see that you have included all that was asked for. I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing everything that you are preparing!
