Good morning Blackbird and Chaffinch Class.
We hope you've had a wonderful weekend. We've been so proud of the learning you have completed at home so far. It's now our last week before half term, so keep up the great learning before your well deserved break.
We always enjoy seeing you all on our zoom calls. These will remain on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 9am for Blackbird class and 11.30am for Chaffinch class. We're especially looking forward to an exciting Zoom on Friday, as it is fancy dress!
Please continue sending us photos of your fantastic work via email or Tapestry. We always love receiving these and it's great to share what you've been up to with your friends too.
Have a super week and keep up the great learning!
