Good Morning Class R!

I hope you all had nice rest over the weekend and did lots of nice things.

Thank you for all the lovely messages I have received and I am so happy to see that you are all enjoying life at home…….baking, planting, looking after caterpillars, drawing on pebbles and leaving them on a trail for others to find and lots more lovely things.  A huge well done to you all!  


Where I live all the children have been busy making scarecrows for their front gardens to form a scarecrow trail.  There are some amazing creations......Peter Rabbit, Captain Tom, The Tiger Who Came to Tea and lots more wonderful ones.   It’s lovely to follow the scarecrow trail when Mr Griffiths and I are walking the dogs, it really makes me smile.  Maybe you could make one?

Here are a few examples!  Aren't they great?

Here is your work for today:
