Morning Message

Good morning Year 6! I hope you had a lovely, relaxing weekend. I had a nice time walking my dog in the sunshine in the park. Hopefully some of you were able to get outside and enjoy the nice weather too! 

I have really been enjoying reading The Ickabog over the past few weeks and can't wait to see how the rest of the story turns out. 

Don't forget to continue uploading your work to Seesaw for your teachers to see. 

Have a great day and we will speak again later on. :)
