Hi all,

Just a quick note to let you know that our Winter Assembly
will be on Friday 16th of December at 1.30 pm. The children have been working
very hard. Our play is an environmental musical dealing with issues of global
warming.

I have tried to keep the costumes as simple as possible. I
will be making penguin and polar bear masks for these roles. If you are having
any problems sourcing items please let me know as someone else in the class may
have something you could borrow.

The children will let you know what their role in the play is.

If you have any questions regarding the assembly please do not
hesitate in contacting me.

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 16th.
