Dear Parents,

Hope you are all safe and well and hope you had a good bank holiday weekend despite the restrictions. Hope you found the work suggestions helpful and manageable last week. It is lovely to see all the great art and craft activities being done at home and also lovely to see your photographs. I have outlined some activities for the coming week. If it is causing difficulty or stress abandon it and perhaps return to it at a later stage. Remember staying positive and keeping your child secure and content is very important at the moment. Again please do not feel under pressure to get everything done.  Feel free to email me if you have any questions or if I can help in anyway.
