Sugarloaf Class

Hi Sugarloaf, 

This will be the last page update as we are now entering summer holidays. You will have 6 whole weeks to rest and relax and prepare yourself for year 6! You will be the oldest in the school and that holds a lot of responsibility. I can't wait to see how much you have all grown once school starts up again!

How have you been keeping busy? Rainy days are always my favourite days to watch a movie! I recently watch Hamilton the musical. I love musicals, they always make me feel so happy. What is your favourite type of movie? 

Remember all work can be sent to:

Children Reading Clipart Stock Vectors, Images & Vector Art ...

Make sure you are continuing to read for at least 20 minutes everyday! I have been checking Epic! and lots of you are going above and beyond this. I'm so proud of you. If you still need a link to allow you to access Epic! at home please let me know. Throughout the summer Epic will still be available but will be limited to 2 hours a week. 

This week's book feature is called:  The Secret of the Sphinx

This graphic novel fits right in with our Ancient Egypt theme. Geronimo is an adventurous character who is always getting himself into sticky situations. This book is funny and exciting and I recommend it to all of you!
