Welcome back from the holidays to the final year in Berkeley Primary School (oh no!).
We’re on a ‘Dangerous’ mission strewn with ‘Disaster’ this term (at least in our topic)… DANGER AND DISASTER

If  you’ve anything interesting at home that might be useful in our topic, please bring it in to school (check with an adult first).  No active volcanoes please.  A broad outline of our plan can be found here : – Disaster & Danger.

On Wednesday 9th October, we will be travelling to Cheltenham for the Literacy Festival where we will be taking part in two workshops over the course of the day. The cost will be £10.50 including trransport and a letter will be coming home soon.

Term 2 and we’re sliding to Christmas …..

28th November…

Christmas Fayre on December 6th – we have a class stall and need your help – any items you could donate for prizes would be much appreciated.

Class open afternoon on Wednesday 4th December – it’s a great chance for the children to ‘show off’ and you can also get stuck in and help with their DT project.
