Welcome back!

 

Hi Poplar Class,

 

It was lovely to see all your happy faces today, you made a fantastic first impression today and really set a high standard in both behaviour and attitude. Keep it up! Both myself and Mrs Spence really enjoyed ourselves, you made our first day back so much more enjoyable.

 

It was really nice to hear lots of interesting things both about you and what you have been up to throughout the holidays. Some of you have been extremely busy.

 

See you tomorrow

 

Love

Mr Wilson
