P5 Home Learning: Monday 18th January- Friday 22nd January 2021

Hello everybody. And so we begin Week 3. I hope you are all well and that last week’s work was ok for you. Please get mum/ dad to message me any time if you need any extra help/ explanation with the tasks I send home to you. Again, I got lots of brilliant work sent in on Dojo. I love to see how you are all getting on and I hope the feedback I send back lets you know just how much I appreciate all your efforts. This week again, try to give everything a go, do your best and don’t be worrying about anything!!

Same as before, I have given you activities to complete each day. Get Mum or Dad to continue to take photos of completed tasks (if they can) and send them to me on Dojo. I will check it and send you feedback. If you have any problems or difficulties, you can also get Mum/ dad to message me on Dojo and I will do my best to help you get sorted. Sometimes I am not getting messages for a period of time (I think it’s my internet that’s the problem) but I will try and respond as soon as I can. And finally, keep staying at home to help keep everybody safe and remember you are all absolute stars.

 Your weekend homework this week is to try and do a good deed for someone at home without them asking you to. You can let me know how you get on again on Dojo.

Have a great weekend and “Keep safe.”
