Hugo dog

Hugo is our cuddly dog. He will be coming home for the weekend with your child sometime during their time in reception. Here is a message from him:

Hello, my name is Hugo and I am pleased that I am coming home with you this weekend. I have brought lots of things with me in my bag as I will need to change my clothes and brush my teeth after eating. Please bring me back to school on Monday morning and don't forget to write about our adventures (on an A4 sheet) for your Learning Journey. You can add photographs if you like! I am looking forward to having lots of fun with you.

Please make sure you pack my belongings in my bag on Sunday. If any of them are lost or broken they will need to be replaced please as I plan to visit all the children in our class.

With love from

Hugo xx
