In English this week, the children have worked incredibly hard to produce a well written and thoughtful letter to the elderly residence at the care home. They have impressed all of their teachers with their positive attitude and excellent effort towards their learning. We are sure the care home will LOVE reading them. It will be exciting waiting to receive a letter back from our new friends. We have also enjoyed exploring lots of different books during our playful enquiry sessions.
