I hope you all had a fabulous day yesterday and managed to complete some super work with your grown-ups. The updates I have received from you all so far have gone in a super picture gallery so look out for your pictures there! Keep up the amazing work! Some of the writing I have seen so far this week is also amazing! I am so impressed by it and it is without a doubt the best Year 1 writing I have ever seen! I love to receive your emails telling me all about the exciting things you have been doing and looking at the pictures of your super work makes me very proud of you...Please keep contacting me to let me know how you are and what you are up to.
Yesterday Lola and George were having a lazy day and didn't really do much apart from sleep curled up in Lola's bed together. I hope you all had a more exciting day than they did!
