Hello Class 4! I hope you have all had a wonderful week. I am continuing to keep you  all in my prayers and hope you are all safe and happy. It is so wonderful to see how hard  you are all working at home.

This week I want you to challenge yourself by carrying out acts of kindness at home. Try and find one thing each day to do which will make someone smile. Jimmy made me  smile this week when he picked fresh flowers from our garden and gave them to me- it
really did make my day! 


Maybe you could help fold the washing or tidy the pots away
without being asked?

Class 4

Distance Learning

Update 04.05.2020


Hello Class 4. As we enter another week of distance learning, I just wanted to say how  lovely it has been receiving your beautiful work.

Everything from art, writing, music and baking - the  list goes on. I am putting lots of work on each week for those who feel they need it but please  remember it is not compulsory to complete it all unless you are really enjoying it. I am keeping you  all in my prayers and really hope you are able to cherish the time you are spending together.

 

A note to working parents: I completely understand  how tricky it can be in juggling working from home with  online learning.  The BBC website, TTR, Abacus and  Spelling Frame offer online lessons which children  should be able to complete independently.
