A Letter to Little Red Riding Hood

Letter 2

Blessing has written a very thoughtful letter to Little Red Riding Hood:
“Dear Little Red Riding Hood
Are you okay? Do you know why I’m saying this to you? Because a wolf is breaking some Christian Values.  He doesn’t show friendship or trust or humility.
I hope you are ok.
From Blessing”

We are pleased that the children at St Matthew’s do show these Christian Values at school!
