This week we learnt a lot about shapes and colours and are getting really good at matching and describing them. Today we shared our plans for the summer holidays and had ice lollies to celebrate! Please can you remember to empty your child’s box, clear the cloakroom and take your child’s spare clothes bag with you on their last day before summer. Then the cleaner will be able to give the areas a really good clean. Thank you! Have a wonderful summer! The Bubbles Team
