         Good morning and welcome back to our class page.


We cannot believe that this is the last week of school for this year! We hope that you enjoy the final few learning ideas.


                        Challenge for this week!   



Everyday this week, we would like you to reflect on this year of learning. What has been your favourite thing about school this year and why? Each day could you write/draw or make something that represents your best learning from this year. Have fun!

 Make sure you build exercise into your day. Remember to take breaks in between tasks, and use it to dance, run or even make an obstacle course.


Adults- Please do not put pressure on yourselves in your new role as a teacher of your child/children- I know you are doing a great job! Make sure you follow your child’s lead into how much they want to do. The above routine is only a guide and it is ok to do less or more than the suggested daily routine.


Remember to give your child lots of praise and breaks during the day and also to have fun together in your home learning journey.

Take care and we miss you all.
