Welcome to Squirrel Class!

Teacher: Mrs Rafferty
ETAs: Mrs Rathmell & Mrs Thorpe

Our final topic this year is the story of the Great Plague.  A very gory end to the year.  We will be finding out how the Plague began and how the epidemic was carried around the country.  We will visit Eyam—The Plague Village on our class trip.  In school I hope to have a ‘Plague day’ when we shall be in quarantine in the classroom.  I would like the children to dress up for this and for our visit to Eyam.  This topic should be a lot of fun as well as informative.      

This term I would like the children to read more widely or indeed wildly and have set them a number of reading challenges including reading in strange places! Please send photographic evidence. Your child should have brought home a list of homework ideas as well as the reading challenges.
