Monday 20th July 
Hello Everyone,
I hope you are all happy and well. This week, I started my summer holiday doing one of my favourite pastimes…….SWIMMING!
I just love swimming…….do you? If you go swimming over the summer, always remember to stay safe and make sure an adult is with you at all times.
Click here, to see what I find when I’m  swimming in the river!
I have really enjoyed seeing all your pictures and hearing about the things you have been getting up to at home. 
Hope you all have an enjoyable and safe summer and I look forward to seeing you back at Fiveways next term.
Have fun and remember to stay safe!!

I’ve also been having fun this week. Dad left some of my tasty dog biscuits in the garden and, when he wasn’t looking, I helped myself to a few! Dad didn’t mind too much but reminded me that, next time, I ought to politely ask for a biscuit rather than help myself.
