Week #34 (22)

Nearly there!

We are nearly at the time for the last bell for a little while here in the UK. The long-awaited May holiday which as I have explained is a little different this year due to the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Usually, there is just one Bank holiday day but this year there are some extras. They all fall during the week that schools have at this time so no extra days for teachers & pupils!

Have you ever visited a place with similar names?
