Wow! 8 long weeks of remote learning and we've got to the last day. I know lots of you may be really excited about coming back to school on Monday, and some of you may be feeling worried because it's been such a long time.
However you are feeling Year 6, know that Miss Sonia and I - and everybody at school is looking forward to having you all back in the classroom so we can be a Year 6 classroom family again.
I am so proud of you all for your resilience, your effort and your general awesomeness. Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and I'll see you all on Monday morning.
Today's timetable looks like this:
