How are you all? We hope you are all keeping well and have been working hard on your school work at home. Keep up the good work! We miss you all and hope to see you all again soon.
We have set out guidelines below for work to complete next week, 30th March- 3rd April. We hope to begin using Seesaw with the class this week and we will be in contact with more information on this. We understand that you are doing your best at home during this difficult time to provide an education for your child and we are very grateful for the work you have done with them so far. We appreciate that circumstances are different for us all at the moment and we don’t want to add further pressure- decide as a family what is manageable in your own circumstances.
Keep safe everyone,
Ms Mc Kiernan & Mrs Buckley

3. The child writes a short paragraph about what they have read.
