I have been asked to put work up fortnightly, not weekly so please enjoy the themed work for the next 2 weeks and I’ll post more on Friday 29th May.
As teachers, we will record a little clip each week for the children. I’m not a natural at this so I thought it might be nice if the children could send me a question that I can answer for them on the next clip. Feel free to stay in touch via e-mail too. I’ve loved seeing the children’s incredible work.
Stay safe everyone.
Love Mrs Gray 💕
