Year Six and I were very pleased with the four day week this week! I'm sure the children have had a lovely long weekend and I look forward to hearing their stories tomorrow. I have been telling the children how excited I was for our INSET Day with Pie Corbett. Following our training with Pie, Year Six will be diving back in to their 30 Book Challenge and working hard to become skilled readers and writers.
In the news this weekend we have heard a lot about Palm Oil, mostly due to Iceland's banned Christmas advert. Year Six were actually ahead of the game on this because on Tuesday we began our Palm Oil workshops with Chester Zoo. A Safari Ranger from Chester Zoo will come to visit us four times this half term. Her name is Jenny and she will be teaching us all about Palm Oil and what we can do to ensure Palm Oil is produced sustainably.
