Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing weekend after a very busy week!


As before, the phonics and maths lessons will be videos to watch, and during ‘leading your learning’ you can choose from the activities on the ‘Learning Menu’ if you’re stuck for some ideas. Remember, you can always explore your learning in any way that you find fun! Please send me pictures as I love seeing the things you get up to!! J


You can contact me via Tapestry between 1pm and 5pm every day. Please write a memo or observation – this will come to me as a note, and I’ll respond to you as soon as I’m able.


I just wanted to reiterate what a fantastic job you are all doing, and to encourage you all to keep it up! While I would like everyone to do as much learning as possible, please remember that if you are really struggling with work commitments and time, you are certainly not being pressured to complete every task or activity I put on for the day! I’m more than happy if you just send back what has been done that day, or at the end of the week as a little update J  yours and your children’s well-being and happiness is, as ever, our highest priority!


Have a great day everyone! See you all for story time J
