I hope you are all well and that you are being well behaved for your grown-ups! I am looking forward to seeing you all back at school as soon as it is safe to be there.
In the meantime, I know you will work hard and use the home learning packs I created for you ,to carry on your learning at home. Remember it’s also important for you to have some fun too, maybe you could learn to cook something with your grown-ups, learn a new game or create a beautiful piece of artwork.
Don’t forget to use Bug Club, TTRS, Doodle Maths and Education City for more learning. Teachers can see who has been using these too!
At the moment, I am busy making sure that our learning, when we return to school, will be amazing. I know Mrs Smith is working on some things too; which means we can communicate more.
Remember! When you are using bug club, click on the bug's face to complete a task!
Make sure you keep everything you do because I can’t wait to see it!
Take care and be kind!
