We would love it if the children could bring a 'shoe box of special items' into school. They need to think of a few possessions (4 or 5) that are really special to them or have a special significance or memory for them and put them into a box to bring into school. Mrs. Trickett and myself brought ours in so the children have some idea what to include eg photograph of someone special, toy, medal, (teabag because we love to drink tea!) If an item is too big or impossible to bring in, then something that represents it is fine eg I brought my passport to represent the travelling that I have done.
We will use the boxes to help us with some of our work next week, so if they could be brought into school next Monday (10th) that would be great.
