Message from Miss Taylor

Hi June Bugs,

I hope you have all had a lovely week. I spent time preparing blog posts for you all and recorded a new maths video for your home learning next week. What have you all been up to?

Once again, looking at your observations on Tapestry has put a smile on my face, especially with such wet and windy weather this week. Here are some of the photos I enjoyed seeing on Tapestry.

My sister went to collect her new puppy this week and she sent me a few photos of him. She has decided to call him Percy. He is tiny and very cute!

Have a great week ahead.

Love from

Message from Mrs Dray

Hello Centipedes,

I hope you are all well and having lots of fun.

I really enjoyed seeing all of your amazing work that you have shared with me on Tapestry.  Well done everybody!

This week, in the June Bug Bubble, we discussed our thoughts on moving to Year One in September.  We have had lots of fun playing outside and in the classroom we have explored the jungle animals and the Popoids.  We have also been working really hard on learning our number bonds to 10.

Keep being good for your families and don’t forget to keep sharing your super work for me to see.

Bye for now,

Mrs Dray
