Hello Wonderful Swift class
I hope you had a lovely weekend and a well-earned rest from school work. Mr Tidy Bug has been busy with extreme reading. He found a great spot out in the garden with the spring flowers.
I hope you are all safe and well.

This half term we have been learning to collage and before Christmas we practised our drawing skills. Can you create a rainbow to display in your window at home? Use any materials you have at home – cut up magazines/newspapers, wool, paper, paint, felt tips, colouring pencils.
You can read more about why people are making rainbows for their windows on Newsround https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/51953553
