Message from Mrs Hunt:
I'm just leaving a message to let you know that from this week I am now teaching an FS2 'bubble' class. But, be rest assured, I am still very much one of the Year 2 teachers and wish it could be you that I am teaching in school! I will continue to plan your English learning and some of the foundation subjects. I apologise for putting up Wednesday's learning late, I will get into a new routine! During the day Mrs Stewart and Mrs Richardson will be checking and responding to Emerald class emails and then I will be able to look back at them after school to find out what you have been up to and to see all your great learning.
