12th June

Hello everyone. Happy Friday!

As you probably are aware, next week would have been our last week in school. As usually we wouldn't give any homework on the last week, Mr. Fogarty has asked that we don't assign any written work next week. I will still post up videos of The Magic Faraway Tree on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and on Thursday I hope to do a zoom call with the class at 11am. It will be just for 15/ 20 minutes to say hello, have a chat, catch up on news and to wish my boys and girls well for the summer and next year. There is no obligation for your child to take part, only if it is something they are happy and comfortable doing. If you are happy for your child to take part, please email me giving your child's permission, and I will communicate the log in details directly for the zoom on Thursday. On Friday, which would have been our half day, I will post up a link of a movie to watch, and maybe you could have a little party at home to celebrate the end of year!
