Blakeney has a lot to celebrate!
This week, Blakeney has a lot to celebrate because the whole class earned ‘Over and Above’ recognition in our assembly today. I was so proud of the way the mature and respectful way that they behaved at the start of the week while I was unwell. Each day, I received posititve reports of their behaviour and was thrilled to learn that they had been working hard. In fact, when I return to work I was really impressed with the quality of the work they produced. Well done to all of you!

Next week, we’re going to have a go at growing sunflowers. Wish us luck!!
