What a brilliant first week we have had!
The children have settled in really well and have been very busy.
We have talked lots about worries and hopes as well as telling me more about themselves today. The children wrote a letter to me during English and this afternoon we drew self portraits that involved changing half their face to show what they enjoy. All the children worked really hard on this! I have uploaded their drawings for you to see.

Each Friday we will have SCORE value winners, a pupil of the week and a Dojo Champion. Unfortunately we can’t bring certificates home at moment so I will upload a photo instead to Class Dojo. It has been really hard choosing our winners this week.
