Good morning Year 1!
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! I have loved the pictures of you being plant detectives and your super drawings of Flowers inspired by Andy Warhol.
Yesterday when completing my Joe Wicks work out, I was joined by Lola and George. They enjoyed the workout and were very tired afterwards. Here is a picture of them enjoying it
