Weekly Review: 

Another fantastic week in year 6!

In English the children have been continuing to read our class text ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ and this week have written beautiful setting descriptions of the lighthouse.

The highlight of our week has been visiting the Ramsgate tunnels. The children have been so enthusiastic about their WW2 learning and it was so interesting to learn more about the part Thanet played in the war.
