Mrs Richards

Mrs Richards loves dancing, singing and a nice piece of cake!

Maybe you could help her by choreographing a 'Groovy Groove' to demonstrate in the class.

Welcome to Year 5

We made our Seasonal Greek Pasta Salads today - they all looked yummy!  Please could you give your child some feedback on his/her salad and discuss how you could alter the ingredients to create a new salad.  If you could bring in a recipe for a salad that would be great (remember to include carbohydrate, vegetables and protein - with dressing as an option). Hopefully we can then create our own healthy salad recipe book.        Thank you.

Please keep practising the songs for the Singfest - not long to go now!
