Hello Palm class,
As I write I'm actually singing the words as you would expect, although to what tune I'm not so sure!
I hope that you have had a good week and have managed to keep active and get out in the garden. As well as working through my school 'To do' list, I've been doing some weeding and tidying in my garden - photo of the corner that I've attacked so far is attached. Small steps for me... I've also sent you a picture of the cake that I made at the weekend. In an attempt to hide the view of the large slice that I've removed, I turned the cake around hoping that you wouldn't notice!
I've enjoyed reading your Woodrow recounts - what a fab time we had there trying lots of new activities in the thick mud but always with a smile.
I hope that you're enjoying the story, The Pedlar of Swaffham; I remember all the fab pictures that the children drew last year to help them memorise the story. I'm looking forward to reading your letters to John Chapman's wife. I also can't wait to hear about the structure that you built and what weight it could take; I'm sure that there will be some funny stories from all of you.
Remember that every day is an opportunity to learn, whether it's reading and learning new words, getting faster at recalling your times tables, making your bed, tying your shoelaces or even caring for plants in the garden. Whatever age we are, we are all still learning.
The final line from my song is ... make the most of every opportunity.
Sending you all a big smile!
