We met Miss Russel on Wednesday morning via Teams which was lovely. She was very excited to meet the class and they were very excited to meet her too. She wrote the class a letter telling them a bit about herself and then the children enjoyed asking her some questions too. ๐Ÿ˜Š

We created wonderful penguin art work for the Outdoor School Art Exhibition which the children really enjoyed doing and it was lovely to walk around the school together admiring all the other classes masterpieces too! We are definitely getting excited about Christmas in P2.
