Year 1 - Miss Carruthers






We have had a lovely final day in Year 1 and Miss Carruthers and Mrs Hall are going to miss everyone so, so much. Where has the year gone?! Time has flown and I don't think we are ready to let you go so soon but here we are! We have both had the best year and had so much fun, we have loved spending every minute with you all. We were both overhwhelmed with everybody's kindness (it took us a while to recover in the classroom on Thursday afternoon and wipe away all our tears) and we just want to say a HUGE thank you for all the kind words and thoughtful gifts; we were speechless! Lots of love to you all, it has been an absolute pleasure! Have a wonderful summer!
