Here are some photos from my week...
Penelope has been doing some home learning this week as well as taking time out to enjoy the sunshine! We also celebrated VE day in our garden with scones and homemade gingerbread! They were delicious. It was lovely to see so many people celebrating as well as keeping their distance. Penelope wore her 'We're all in this together' T-shirt. The money raised from these T-shirts go towards the NHS!
Stay safe everyone and keep smiling. I am missing you all lots and can't wait to see you all!

It has been lovely to have so much sunshine this past week or so, however I hope you've all been superstars staying at home and keeping yourselves and your families safe.
I have been busy this week also. Penelope and I have been planting some seeds and watching our pea pods grow! They are really tall already, I think the sunshine has been helping. We also planted parsley, beetroot, pansies and peppers. We can't wait to see them grow.
We have also been baking this week! Chocolate brownie, a firm favourite in the Simpson household!
