VE Day diary entry

Class 3, you ALL are superstars! Thank you for sharing your Home Learning and telling me what you have learnt each day. You amaze me with the quality of your writing, drawing, researching and even baking! You have been very busy so: Be kind to yourself. Enjoy the sunshine (or the rain). Embrace each day with a smile. Mrs Dye

'Victory in Europe Day' This is what we have been learning about to the VE Day to get ready for the 75th anniversary of the end of the WW2

We like Lily's Reading Journal front cover with an optimistic quote

If you wonder what possibly could Paddington, a coconut shell, a measuring tape, a cat-like candle and the Tottenham football have in common, wait no longer. Class 3 writers have all the answers.

Well done to all the children for coming up with such amazing, and often humorous stories. It was a joy to read them all.

'At least we have lots of sweets!'

What a lovely message to our children who wrote thank you letters to the NHS staff at Lister.

Today I received the following message for you all:

Dear Aleshya, Gary, Beau, Charlie, Jack, Felix, Lenny, Raphael, Jayda and Olivia

 

Thank you very much for your lovely letters of support for our staff – it was very thoughtful of you to take the time to write these and send them to me.

 

I will make sure that these are shared with our staff and that they know that you are thinking of them.

 

I know that things must seem very strange to you at the moment and it is hard not to see your friends and all of your families. I want to thank you for staying at home where you can, and helping to protect the NHS and save lives. It really does make a difference.

 

Thank you again.
