Good Morning Silver Birch Class! Wow it's half-term already. Have a really good break, enjoy the weather and I look forward to getting back in touch with you on our return.

I am attaching a link to a questionnaire that I would like you to fill in and email back to me. It is to help us reflect on the year and help me to write your reports over the break.
