Update Tuesday 4th August

Hello everyone, here we are hopefully enjoying the summer break.

I hope you are all keeping safe and looking after each other.

Many thanks for all your well wishes over the last few days of school and your kind gifts. The video you all produced was very emotional and I did have more than a few tears in my eyes.

Finally with the help of my family I have managed to put together a short video for you all, it’s the second item on the download list, Class of 2019/2020. It was a challenge to upload but it is here.

Stay safe everyone and we all hope to see you all in September.

Best wishes from all the Reception class staff

Mrs McCrory, Mrs Abbotts, Mrs Sellers, Mrs Snowden and Miss Litherland.
