Thank You :)

To all the children at Whitecraig Primary School,

I hope you are all enjoying the holidays despite all the rain!  I wanted to say a big thank you for the kindle you gave me as a leaving gift.  I have just come back from a holiday in the Lake District and I have read two books, it is great!  Sam and Maisie, my nephew and niece also like it and have down loaded quite a few children’s stories for bedtime. 

Enjoy the rest of your holidays and I look forward to hearing all your news soon.

Miss Taylor 🙂
