If your child has a reading scheme book (in the plastic wallet) please make sure they have it in school on Friday morning with a completed comprehension activity so that we can change the book ready for hometime.

Within the classroom we will be learning about; the history of Castleton and Wickersley, contour maps and comparing localities.
