Secret Task -

Mrs Bashford will be leaving Gilberts at the end of this month and next week will be her last week in school! Although we are currently in the midst of a school closure, we would like to show her the love and appreciation that we would normally say good bye with and for this we need your help.

 

This is secret so please keep this quiet as Mrs Bashford does not know this part…. Please make her a goodbye / thank you card / picture and send it to school either via the post or drop it in on your daily walk. I will be collecting them and sharing them with her on her last week in school. 

 

Please can you do this as soon as possible so that Mrs Bashford can really feel the appreciation that we all have for her!
