Hedgehogs Home Learning – Wednesday 15th July

Hello Hedgehogs,

Happy Wednesday! It’s been a very unusual term for us all, I was so looking forward to teaching you all when we started back after the Easter holidays but sadly that couldn’t happen. It’s been lovely to get to know you all through phone calls and pictures you’ve sent in. I can’t wait to meet you all in person after the summer holidays! Reception – you will make brilliant Year 1s and I’m sure you’ll be great role models for our new reception children. Year 1s you will have to pop to say hello and I know you’ll all have so much fun in year 2! Well done for keeping going with the home learning or keeping safe in your bubbles at school – you’ve all been superstars! You need to give your adults at home a big pat on the back and plenty of cuddles too for helping you with your learning – I hope you all manage to have a rest over the next few weeks 🙂

I hope you have a lovely summer holidays!

Reception, your lesson will be uploaded at 10am. Year 1s, your lesson will be uploaded at 10:30am.
