Tuesday 21st July   

Hi Everyone

Hope you had a lovely weekend! It's the summer holidays and it looks as though the sun has come back yippee! smiley  Thank you so much for all your lovely cards and gifts - Miss Davies has lots of chocolates to eat, yum yum!  I hope you liked your pirate goody bag.

I am so proud of you all this year - you have all been so brave, positive and resilient coping with the strangest time.  Remember you are all brilliant and I hope you have a fab summer holiday and come back ready to show Miss Tandy how talented you all are!

Lots of love

Miss Davies xheartsmileyheart
