Hey Year 1 I’m still missing you all terribly. I’ve got to speak to lots of you which has been really lovely and I’ve received lots of pictures of what you have been up to so thank you for that. I hope you are ok and enjoying the time with your families. I wonder how many of you have got a tent up or have built a den? It’s the Easter holidays now so no work for you woohoo! Unless you want to of course. You can still e-mail me if you need any help, want to send me any pictures or just fancy a chat. Have lots of fun on your break and stay safe little darlings.

You may also want to enter the Easter competition!

Can you make your very own Easter Egg in the theme of a story, character or movie? You could paint hard-boiled eggs or use art and crafts.

Can you make a lovely Easter bonnet? Perhaps your family could host their own bonnet parade!

Send a photo of your entry to the Year 1 email address. A winner from our class will be announced on the first newsletter back after the Easter break.

Much love to you all
Mrs Harrison, Mrs Williamson and Mrs Cooke xx
