Hello for the last time this academic year.
We just wanted to write a little note to say how much we have missed having you in school. We have missed your chatter and creativity. The school has been a very strange place without you. We are incredibly proud of all the activities you have done at home. Some of you have learnt to ride a bike and tried activities that you have never done before.
We have loved the work that you have sent us and especially the photos where we can see you smiling and enjoying your special time at home.
It is very strange not to be able to say goodbye to you in person. We wish you a safe and happy summer holiday.
This is an activity that Mrs lamb in FS2 has found for us to do, I hope you enjoy it.
Take care Mrs Cox, Miss Poole and Miss Eyley.
