Nice to see you, to see you nice!

Well year 6 we were overwhelmed to see TWENTY SEVEN of you join us teachers (not forgetting Miss Chittick) on Zoom earlier.

We hope we made you smile. We plan on hosting another meeting next week so watch this space for the date and time…

We want you to learn a new skill:we would like you to demonstrate this new skill at our next meeting. This time, we will email your adults the link directly in case some adults missed the blog posts. We look forward to ‘seeing’ you all again.

Pig-Heart Boy – Ch22-27

Here are the final chapters of the book! I do hope you have enjoyed listening to the story. Write a book review for me to share on Seesaw and I will upload for other children who haven’t managed to read yet… your review might just inspire them to listen 🙂 But don’t give away the ending!
