Hello Abigail! It is so lovely to hear from you and I am so pleased that you are managing to keep in touch with others from our class and year group. Miss Simpson and I are very impressed with your video - so well planned and clearly narrated; a fantastic job! I look forward to seeing your next masterpiece - I wonder what it could be? Take care and enjoy the lovely weather we are having. From Miss Field

Abigail(about a week ago)

Hi Miss Simpson and Miss Field, how are you? I hope you aren’t as bored as me! Recently, I have been using an app called zoom to talk to a few of my friends (Melody, Star and Manara) I would love to see others via video call. At the beginning of lockdown, my twin boy, baby cousins were born! They are soooo cute! Hope to see you soon. Abigail x

Helen(less than a month ago)

I was just inquiring that Melody's login details for Sumdog are not working. Can you help us? Many thanks Helen.
