Miss Simpson(about a week ago)

Good Morning Abigail! It is lovely to hear from you, I hope you and your family are well and keeping safe. Second place - that is fabulous! I wonder if you could be our top speller this week, keep going! I should have known that your rock was the Harry Potter one, I am looking forward to having one of our very important chats about Gryffindor and Hufflepuff! I am missing you all lots, but I am sure that we will see each other soon. Take care, Miss Simpson
