Good morning Primary 3, we hope you are well and we are excited to share some work and some of the VE celebrations pictures we have received yesterday. It is always so uplifting to see the work you’ve been doing and we would love to post every single thing you’ve sent to us, however unfortunately we cannot upload everything due to blog upload restrictions. Here is a selection of photos, including Thomas and his family’s VE celebrations which looked like so much fun and Poppy creating her potato space art, it’s out of this world!

 

We would also like to remind you that tomorrow at 10am we will be having our Teams check-in. We thought to change the time to the morning and see how it goes, if the afternoon suits people better we will return to the afternoon and if the morning is better we can keep it to then? We are looking forward to chatting with you all and seeing how you are getting on, we miss you all!

We would also ask your parents if it would be possible for them to follow this link and complete this short survey from West Lothian Council, this would be much appreciated!
