Happy Newspaper

Miss Ames has agreed to don her ‘editor in chief’ hat once more to produce a special edition of the happy newspaper. We would love children and their families to share the positive ways they’ve engaged with us over the last few weeks. We’d love contributions of things that will bring a bit of positivity!

Please send in any contributions (pictures, drawings, pieces of writing, jokes, anecdotes, recipes…) in to school either via email to the office or in an envelope marked ‘The Happy Newspaper’. The deadline for this is Monday 30th November.
