                    Good Morning, Year 5

Welcome to our last day of the term!  What a week it has been but you have all been superstars.  Thanks for your continued hard work and resilience. I hope after today, you have a well-rested holiday and enjoy Christmas with your families.  Take care and be safe.  Miss Mc xx
