Dear Parents,

Keeping in Touch

This is a difficult time for everyone but I hope you are all well and staying safe and healthy at home. Thank you to everyone who has been reading school books or listening to an audio book this is fantastic, it will be a big help when we get back to school. I do hope the children are also enjoying the sun and warm weather and are playing in your back garden if they can. We are certainly missing all of the children at school and it is a very quiet place without them.
