I hope you've had a lovely weekend. I'm really pleased to be back at school this week now that I am feeling better. Thank you to those that have sent me get well wishes and for those in school that helped make my card. A massive thank you to my amazing colleagues for holding the fort and for taking over the online learning whilst I've been in bed!
I hope you enjoy your learning this week and can't wait to see what you've been doing. I'm hoping to arrange another Zoom meeting, so watch this space for your invite.
