On our Google Classroom today plase come dressed in your pirate costume and we will have a ‘pirate party’! Please feel free to bring along a drink, a snack of your choice, cake or biscuit! We will look at some of the treasure maps you have made and also listen to the last part of the story ‘ George’s Marvellous Medicine’.

Your tasks today will once again have a pirate theme.

Finally, Mrs Humble and I want to say a BIG thank you to you for making this rather strange year a wonderful one! We’ve has lots of fun and created many happy memories. We’ve loved teaching you and watching you grow and develop into very mature little people. You have all achieved so much and should feel extremely proud. We certainly are!

Please also say thank you to your parents for all their help and support throughout the year but especially during lock down and isolation.

Have a wonderful summer everyone and hopefully we’ll hopefully see you next week Thursday when we come around to deliver your school books and a little gift we’ve bought for you.

Keep smiling and take care!

Mrs. Gourley 🙂
