I can’t believe we are at the end of p2/3. I have really missed getting to see all your faces over the past few weeks and I would love to get to say goodbye to you all.
I know you will all have a fantastic year next year and your new teachers are very lucky to get you in their classes.  
When you think about going back to school in August, what do you hope things will be like? Is there anything you hope will happen? Or something you hope you get better at?
Can you think of 3 hopes? You can draw, write or share them with someone else in your house.

Literacy- Film Studies
This week we are going to be doing film studies for our literacy work. The films are not like ones you would go and see in the cinema, they are shorter and sometimes have a message or moral for the audience.
Even though they are short, there is still lots to think about.   Questions for discussion:
What makes a good film?
What are your favourite films and why?
You can either write or discuss your answers
