Goodbye and a Happy Summer Hols to you all!

So it's time to say farewell to all of you in Y3.  You have been an amazing bunch of children who we have loved teaching once again this year, even though we were cut-off in our prime!  We have been really impressed with the work you have completed over the last few months of home learning and our sincere thanks go out to all parents and carers who have supported your learning throughout this time.  We have really appreciated your patience and understanding in these challenging times.  

Mr Simpson is looking forward to teaching you all in September in the Y4 classroom next door.  

Finally, a huge thank you also for the kind words, gifts and cards which you so generously gave in the last couple of weeks.  

 

Enjoy the time off with your families, stay safe and have fun.  Let's hope the sunshine will come out again soon! 

Love Mrs G and Mrs M xx  heartbroken heart
