Good Morning Robins Class.
A BIG thank you for the lovely emails letting me know how you are all getting on with your home learning activities. Please keep sending more, as they are the highlight of my day! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Throughout the week I’ll add the photo’s to our class page, keep looking below to see what all your friends have been doing too!
(If you are happy for pictures to be shared, please let me know in your email.)
Remember these are very different times and home learning will look different for all of us. Your mummies and daddies are still trying to do their own work at home too, you will have to be sharing computers and the internet, it’s tough! Be kind to yourselves. Just try and do what you can and keep to the same routine every day.
Here are some more visual timetables to help you plan your week:
If you don’t get chance to complete all the tasks that is okay. stay safe and keep happy, enjoying time with your families.
I miss you all lots!
A letter from Mrs Chrysler
KS1 The Pentecost story that you read last week tells us about the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helped Jesus’ friends to go and spread God’s love.
We are all trying extra hard to be kind and loving at the moment. Could you think of something kind that you could do to show your family that you love them?
If you draw, write about or take a picture of your kindness, ask you grown up to send it to the class email address and your teacher will post them on the website.
