Sarum

25th June 2020

Dear Super Sarum,

Hello again from me here at Amesbury CE Primary.  It's been such a long while since I last wrote to you, but I am well and still missing you all.  I have enjoyed the emails, the photos, films and work that you have sent in for me - you have made me smile and I hope you are still enjoying this time as best as you can.  I know that you have been doing a variety of different activities, such as drumming, reading in weird places, baking and working hard on your learning packs.  Thank you so much and keep up the good work.  You are the best!

The weather has been kind to us, so I hope that you have had the time to be outside and enjoy the area around you.  Maybe you have made a bug hotel, a bird feeder, planted some seeds or climbed trees.  Anyway, do spend some time learning about nature around you.

I am absolutely fine and as I am in a 'bubble' with my mum and dad, I get to see them more and spend time with them.  They are well, by the way.  My plants at home are growing well, but I do have to water them every evening - the best time.  The vegetables are getting stronger, and my flowers are in bloom with plenty of bees, and hopefully soon butterflies, hovering around them.  The birds enjoy the seeds from the feeders; the pigeons and crows are not getting everything their way.  Eventually I hope to show you a few photos.  It's just really pleasant to sit in the garden with a good cup of tea.

Anyway, I hope you are still keeping safe and doing all that you know you should.  Keep trying your best with the learning packs, reading from books on the Bug Club and practising your times tables.  Very soon the libraries will be open again, as well as some places you can visit such as Stonehenge and Old Sarum.  I know that Longleat will be open soon - roooaaarrr!

Here are some websites worth exploring too:

Take care Sarum, keep safe, a hug to all of you and keep smiling.  Oh, and to all of you who have had birthdays in the lockdown or soon will, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  I hope you have had or will have a lovely day.

Warm wishes,  Miss Sainsbury
