"Hi Everyone!


Tomorrow is National Wild life day! If you could be a wild animal what would you be? I would quite like to be a giraffe as they look so elegant.

Also tomorrow in 1962 The Beatles started their first recording sessions at EMI’s Abbey Road.


Do you have a favourite Beatles song and do you have any memories surrounding it?

If you have an answer please send it in to the forum :)
