Gretton Primary School


Well done everyone and thank you for your messages. You have been busy in so many different ways – collecting frog spawn, trampolining, writing stories, colouring rainbows, reading to grannies remotely, making films, reading books, exploring Purple Mash, fixing burst water pipes, making cards and sending letters. All of these things show how resilient you all are.
