Section Description
Term 5 Week 1

All children from Year 1-6 have a joint theme for this week. Our historical theme is Ancient Egypt. This will draw our community together and we will be able to share the fantastic learning we are doing at home. Please email pictures and comments to Miss Stewart at office@arkcastledown.org so she can share them in the celebration assembly on Friday! That’s right, see Miss Stewart on Friday via facebook to hear about all the fantastic learning you have completed this week. Look out for your name to be mentioned!

Also, catch our values assembly every Monday on facebook and our website to hear the story and value of the week.
