Week Seven (18th May) Message from Mrs Mason

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well at home. I am hearing that many of you are finding things a bit tough as the weeks go on. It is really hard for everyone and your grown-ups will be expecting a lot from you. Try your very best to stay calm and to find some time each day to do something that you like and enjoy.

I have tried to find time to practice playing my clarinet. I played the Last Post and We’ll Meet Again last week. I am missing playing with my orchestra and I am looking forward to when we can return. In the meantime, I am driving Mr Mason mad with my practice, but he’s happier this week, as he can start to play golf again!

I hope you find the opportunity to laugh with your families in the coming weeks.

Best wishes,
Mrs Mason
