Attenborough class 2019 - 2020

Mr Gilbert

Hello Everybody,

I hope you had a wonderful half term, I am sure it whizzed by. For this half term we are reading the Firework-Maker's Daughter by the incredibly imaginative Phillip Pullman. Please do get a copy if you can and read ahead with your child. I am sure you will enjoy it as well. 

As you probably know we have an additional teacher in the class this term, Mr Burke, who is a student teacher. He has already been teaching for a while and we are lucky to have him in the class. Please feel free to say hello if you see him. 

The spelling for the weeks ahead are listed below, please do ask them to practice, it is really important. 

All the best,

Mr Gilbert
