Week beginning 24th June 2024


As much as we have loved the sun the heat is starting to get a bit too much. However, this has not stopped us from working hard. We have created working machines in Art that use pulleys and screws. Meanwhile in History, we have started researching the Indus Valley and finding out about their peaceful ways. In English, we have delved deeper into the city with Varjak and made new friends allowing for us to retell parts of the story from their eyes. Finally, sports day is just around the corner and the excitement is building, we had the rehearsal and now we can't want to show everyone what we can do.
