Wrigley Writes!

Hello Everyone!

 

I hope you are all well and that you are enjoying some extra time at home.  It's important that we all keep in touch as we'll all be missing our friends and the grown ups at school will certainly be missing hearing all your news!

 

I will upload my news on this page so you can see what I'm up to at home.  Why don't you write to me and let me know what you are doing too?  You can write a letter, a story, send me a picture or keep a diary.  Send it by email to office@stjamesjohn.bucks.sch.uk and I will write back to you.  I'll pop the pictures on this page too so all your friends can see them as well.

 

I'll really look forward to hearing all your news.

 

With all best wishes,

 

Mrs Wrigley

 

St James and St John show their support for all the fantastic people working to keep us safe and well. Thank You.

2. Finely chop up the red pepper and put in pan to start cooking.

3. Cut the tomatoes in half then cut the potatoes into bite size chunks. Then slice the onions thinly (get a parent to do it for you because it's DANGEROUS!). Then put these ingredients in the pan and mix well until cooked.
