4th - 8th May

Good morning!

 

I hope that this message finds you all well.

I have been sent some amazing work over the past couple of weeks, it has made me feel very proud to see all of the amazing activities that you are completing. Thank you for sharing this with me!

 

Just a reminder- Do what feels right in order to keep you and your child happy. If this means that they play and do no home learning- then that is fine! Do not feel that you need to compare with other families, as every child is different and you are all doing an amazing job! Stay strong. 

 

Please feel free to contact me, even if it is just to say hello!

Thank you for your continued support
