Your talk homework over half term is to talk to your family including Mummys, Daddys, Grandparents to see what they can remember about Buckden in the 'olden days'. If they have any photographs, please bring them in to share with us. We will be looking at how Buckden has changed over time, with regard to the shops and amenities in the village.

I am so proud of how hard the children have worked this half term, they've really made some good progress in all areas of the curriculum and are definitely ready for a well-deserved break!
