Good morning Y6,


It's been great seeing some of you back in school and yesterday we had a really good day. I'm really enjoying spending time with you and seeing how you have all been.

 What do you think of the Ickabog story? I'm really enjoying it. I've got a feeling something bad is going to happen to Flapoon and Splittleworth. What do you think?

 I hope those of you not in school are keeping safe and thank you for uploading your work into Seesaw.
