Good morning everyone! 

I hope you all enjoyed the fabulous sunshine yesterday, it was glorious! Today's star of the blog is Miss Haynes stood in our willow tunnel at school. We will have to get busy weaving our willow when we get back in school Reception and Year 1 children! It has been growing so fast whilst you have been staying at home. 

Tommy updated us with his plants by sending me some great photos yesterday. He loved seeing my snail photos, he and Lilly have a friendly snail who they have named Mr Fred Snail! As part of Tommy's maths learning he measured how long Mr Fred was and discovered he was 8cm long. It was a little tricky as Mr Fred kept shrinking and stretching as he moved! What great learning.
