Gretton Primary School


Hi there Rowan Class,

So, we only have two weeks left of the summer term! Where has the time gone? During this penultimate week, we are finishing off our ‘Once upon a time’ topic. We are going to have a Fairy Tale shop role-play and the children are going to come dressed as their favourite character on Friday. I would like to use the last bit of time we have left to cover key skills in literacy and numeracy as one final push before the holidays. 

Please keep up the wonderful work you are all doing!
