Good Morning Caterpillars

How are you all? Did you have a lovely bank holiday weekend?

I've been going on lots of lovely walks with my dogs and really enjoying this wonderful weather. I have also been doing lots and lots of baking (when I can get hold of flour). I have found a few great recipes that I can't wait to try out. You may see them posted on here in a couple of weeks. 

Here is another weekly update. At the bottom of this page I have uploaded a couple of phonics videos. Watch these to help refresh your memory of all the sounds and tricky words we have learnt this year, I hope you find them helpful.

I am so proud of all of the amazing learning you are all doing. Remember as always if you have any questions please do send me an email

Take care and miss you all,


Miss Tierneysmiley
