Today the children were allowed to choose when they were going to hand in this weeks homework.

Charlie, Hannah, Aidan and Ben chose to hand it in this Friday 31st March because they wanted to get it done before Easter so that they could enjoy their holidays.

Haidyn, Keira, Mathilde, Matthew, Henry, Oliver, Daisy, Amy, Innes and Isla chose to hand it in after the holidays on Tuesday 18th April because they wanted more time to complete it.

We decided as a class to put a post on the blog to remind ourselves of our choices.
