Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Autumn Term 2 - Issue 5
A word from Mr Broom.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Our tree arrives on Monday and so does the usual Christmas card postbox.
By the end of today, I will have spent four afternoons teaching this week, which has been a real treat for me. On Monday, I worked with our wonderful Year 3 children to explore the tomb of Tutankahmun. On Tuesday, I visited Year 1 for the afternoon, to finish off their comparative writing about childhood in the past and present. I worked with year 6 yesterday afternoon, designing new class pages for our new school website and this afternoon, I'm visiting year two for a spot of well-earned golden time!
It's been a busy week also for the teaching staff. Our Early Years team completed their Autumn Term assessments on Monday and we all got together on Wednesday to discuss the Science week which will be coming up in the Spring Term.
If you're out and about Christmas shopping this weekend, have a great time and wrap up warm. I look forward to seeing many of you at our Christmas Fair next week.
