Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!
It looks like a bit of good weather is with us this week so plenty of opportunity to go bug hunting or to carry on with the nature scavenger hunt or to even make a bug hotel! I have seen some super ones on Tapestry. Just a reminder that the traditional May Bank Holiday has been moved to this Friday to conincide with the VE day celebrations. I think inspired by Captain Tom people will be making an effort to celebrate at home especially during this difficult time. Send me any photos of your efforts next week, to our website address, and they will go into our school VE day celebrations folder.
Challenge of the day!
Make something ready to help you to celebrate VE day. It could be a flag or some bunting. There are lots and lots of ideas on the Twinkl website.
