Happy Friday Pine cones!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely week and have enjoyed the sunshine. It always cheers me up when the sun is out. I have been enjoying reading some great books in the sun. How is your reading challenge coming on? Which book has been your favourite?

Next week is half term and as everyone has been working so hard we thought that next week you could complete some of these fun activities.

Half term activities

We have also been invited to enter the Wandsworth Poetry Competition. The theme this year is happiness. Can you write a poem about what happiness means to you? Find all of the details here:
