I hope you all had a great weekend celebrating VE Day with your household. It was a great chance for us to stop and think about all our service men and women, past and present, who have done so much for us. In a time that we may be finding tricky, it is nice to think about what we are thankful for. It would be great if you could come up with 6 things you are grateful for and put them into a gratitude list. I have thought about mine this weekend and here it is.
Miss Ward’s Gratitude List
- My home
- Our school
- Family/ Friends
- Fresh air
