A message from Mrs Maddison to Year 1

A message from Mrs Maddison to Year 1

Dear Year 1

I hope you have had a lovely week full of learning from home and showing your mams and dads how brilliant you are at working hard! I know it’s a bit different but keep trying your best. Make the most of the sunshine and play in the garden if you can. I can’t wait to hear all about what you’ve been up too when we get back to school together. Mrs Maddison 2 and I have had a very quiet week without you all!

Just remember to be good, be brave and keep smiling!

See you soon,

Mrs Maddison x

PS, It is ‘Happy Friday’ so Mrs Maddison 1 and Mrs Maddison 2 think you absolutely deserve CHOOSING this afternoon! =)
