Keep up the great work Finches, I am so proud of you all. Thank you parents for all your help, support and encouragement with this home learning. You are all STARS and very much appreciated. I miss my Finches so much and can't wait to see you all again. I do hope you can join us for our class zoom chat this Wednesday at 11:00am. Have a think about one thing you would like to tell your classmates about, since you have been in lock down. Don't worry if you don't want to, you can just say hello and give us a wave.
Take care and keep safe!
Love from Miss Gregory & Lacey xx
