Message from Mrs Farrant

Dear Reception,

I hope that you have had a lovely week.

The sun has been shining this week so Percy and I decided to do some gardening. We made sure that we watered the plants so they didn’t get thirsty. We also planted my potato plants into a bigger pot so they have more space to grow.

Have a lovely half term.
