Easter Activities for the holidays!

A very big thank you for all the wonderful home learning you have been doing these past few weeks. It has been lovely to see your work on class dojo, including some videos of you in action!

With the Easter break coming up we will not be uploading any school work for you to do. We would like our pupils, parents and staff to have a well earned break from school. After the break, new work will be uploaded at the start of the new term.

We do have some Easter activities for you to do – a pick ‘n’ mix! These are optional but lots of fun! You can do all the activities or just a few – it’s up to you. We know you will enjoy them and create some wonderful things.

Please feel free to share anything that you do on class dojo.

Thank you for your continued support.

Stay safe and look after each other ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ
