Hi everyone! I hope that you are all OK at home. It is so so nice to hear from most of you yesterday. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting on. Even if it just to say hi!
**Please just do what work you can and please please don’t worry if you don’t do it all. I’d rather give you lots to keep you busy than not enough. If you wish to do alternative activities, that is also absolutely fine. Just do what is right for your family situation. Also, if you get stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. **
Today’s activities are as follows:
