Week 1

Dear children,

We will miss you while school is closed but we know that you will continue to be the best version of you! Remember to have breaks, snack times, exercise, brain breaks and vary your activities! Try your best and present your work neatly in your books. Writing activities and handwriting practise can include writing letters and cards to your loved ones and relatives abroad. Your parents may want to adapt some of these activities to suit your needs and interests. We will post art, nature and mindfulness activities and update things regularly. Most importantly, always be kind and helpful and say your prayers. Continue to be your fabulous, caring selves and we will look forward to seeing you again and finding out what you have been up to. This is one more adventure in life - make the most of everyday. May God bless you all with  good health, love from the Year 3 team x
