Good morning!

A bit breezy this morning! I was nearly blown over during my morning walk to collect my duck eggs from the bottom of the garden!

I hope that you all have had a lovely week and are looking froward to the bank holiday weekend. As it would have been half term for us all next week, there will be no home learning put up on our page.  Please use this time to have a well earned break and rest, enjoy the good weather and spend quality family time.  Mrs Whittaker and I know that you have been working hard at home and miss you lots.

Have a good day everyone and a lovely week next week!
