Dear Hollybank Family,

Oh boy, do I love chewing things at the minute! Don’t leave anything within my reach because I will eat it! I’m proud to say I have eaten three leads but this week I have decided things in the bin are tastier! My Mum has posted my latest training video ๐Ÿ™ˆ, I’m really proud as I made loads of mistakes last week at school. This week I’ve learned more and did really well. PS that’s my brother and sister in the video! 

Lots of Love

Marshall
