Summer Term Week 2

Wow it's the second week of term already. I hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed some fun time in the garden. Don't forget to look back at the gallery for week 1 to see some of the lovely learning you have all been doing. 

Your first challenge this week is to watch the video of messages from all the staff at Holy Family School. Now it's your turn- I would like you to send me a picture of yourself with a message for all of the class. You could write, paint or draw your message. You might even want to be more creative than that. Email me your pictures by Thursday to our class email address I will then make them into a short movie so that you can watch all your friends. I can't wait to see all your pictures. This was my picture- Arthur did one too, you can see it on his blog this week. My message to you all is to Live Each Day as One Happy and Holy Family. You will find the video here.

On this page you will find all the resources you need for the week commencing 27th April 2020. Work hard and enjoy your learning this week.
