Dear Year 6, we hope that you have had a good week and an even better weekend. Myself and Mrs A-B have been really impressed to hear the positive feedback from the adults working in Year 6 about how you have settled back into school life. We are so proud of you but also miss not seeing you all. Why not send us an email to let us know how you are doing and how you felt the first week went. Remember to listen carefully to the adults and to keep yourself safe. Obviously for those still at home, we would love to see you on Teams between 10am to 12pm (Monday to Friday). If you have any questions or concerns, please remember to email. Also, we would like to see some of your POWer projects based on 1066 or anything exciting that you have been doing at home. Lets use this as a platform to share your AMAZING work. Have a great week everyone 🙂
