A Message from Vashti Hardy   20.5.20


This is a very exciting day, Lark Class, because Vashti Hardy has sent you all a personal message this morning.


Hello Year 5!

I’m so happy you’re still able to enjoy Brightstorm while safe at home at the moment. I hope you are all enjoying being part of the crew and adventuring alongside Arthur and Maudie. Have you enjoyed meeting the thought-wolves? Keep adventuring in your imaginations and dreaming big!
