Good Morning Everyone smiley


How are you all today?  Isn't it warm already this morning.  I'm sitting in the office at Akeley with the fan on full blast and a nice cool bottle of water.  I hope you are making time to enjoy your paddling pools and ice creams at home.


Yesterday was another busy day here and another day of Ben beating me at Uno after work.  Yesterday's score was 5-4 to him which was a big improvement on the previous day's matches where he beat me 5-1.  I think I need to get some more practice in.  What did you get up to yesterday?  Did you look at the Blue Peter badges or play Minecraft?  I think it will be a very quiet day in the Wrigley house today as everyone struggled to sleep in the heat last night. I think there will be some tired people there today and perhaps not as much work happening as there should be!


How about a quiz today....this little lot should keep you busy for a while!


Good luck and don't forget to let me know if you need the answers.  Maybe classes 6a and 6b could have a contest to see which bubble get the highest average score!


Take care, have a wonderful day and enjoy the fact the we are officially half way to Christmas!!!


With all best wishes,

Mrs Wrigley heart
