Hi Year 1, 

We are at the end of the Summer term. Can you believe it? I just want to say, I am so proud of you all for how you have coped with the school closure and how well you have worked at home or in school (for those of you that have returned). I hope you have a well deserved break but don't forget to keep up with those reading skills and maybe join the summer reading challenge here, where you can create your own avatar and earn badges and play games too.  

Remember to be kind to each other and make special memories as a family. Click here for 100 things to do indoors together with your family.

Take care, 

Mrs Hellawell
