Hi Miss Hitchings, I am missing everyone at school but I am enjoying all the learning you have sent and being at home with Mummy and Daddy. I am learning to play hockey with Daddy and have been running the Golden Mile around the garden each day and have run a mile already! Guess what...last Friday I was in 'Good Home Learning' assembly for my maths and got to sit on the bench in our sitting room! Haha! Take care Love Martha x
